History & History Related Items

Lomita history:

For many years, large landowners had ranchos in this area. Rancho Los Palos Verdes was divided up and sold to 17 different buyers in 1882. The area that would later become Lomita was mostly sold to Ben Weston and the Ranch WAter Company, owned by Nathaniel Andrew Narbonne. Although there's no question that Lomita derives its name from the Spanish for "little hills," there is apparently some disagreement over justwhooriginally bestowed the name.

Lomita is Spanish for little hills, but no one is entirely sure how the city claimed its name. Some say early founders named it as they surveyed the land. others say the name "Lomita del Toro" appears on early maps.
