LOMITA
WELCOME TO LOMITA, CALIFORNIA.
Lomita is home to around 20,300 people, and the city's name means little knoll in Spanish.
Originally, the city was part of Rancho San Pedro, granted to Juan Jose Dominguez by the Spanish Empire in 1784. The city boasts numerous historic landmarks, and perhaps the most noteworthy one is the Lomita Railroad Museum. The museum opened in 1966, and is devoted to the steam engine period of railroading. Mrs Irene Lewis, the founder of the museum, operated the Little Engines of Lomita along with her husband, selling kits for live steam engine locomotives. Her engines have appeared in several movies, including The Greatest Show on Earth in 1952. This small business was what inspired her to open a museum where she could showcase her products, and the museum became the first of its kind west of Colorado. It was designed as a replica of the Boston & Maine's Greenwood Station in Wakefield, Massachusetts, and in 1967, Mrs. Lewis donated the museum to the City of Lomita. Lomita also features several other museums and a number of beautiful parks, Including the Takaishi Garden. The garden is located right in front of Lomita City Hall, and was dedicated to Lomita's sister city Takaishi, Japan in 1986.
