POMONA, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Pomona, is located in Southern California, in Los Angeles County, between the Inland Empire and the San Gabriel Valley. According to the 2020 Census, the population is over 151,000. Pomona is 30 miles east of Los Angeles, and approximately 25 to 30 miles from the cities of Santa Ana, Riverside, and San Bernardino. The Los Angeles-San Bernardino County line forms most of the city’s southern and eastern boundaries.
The Indigenous residents of the area were the Gabrielino Native Americans (Tongva Indians). In 1771, the Mission San Gabriel Arcángel was founded. In 1837, the Mexican Governor granted 22,340 acres of the former San Gabriel Mission to Don Ignacio Palomares and Don Ricardo Vejar, who named the newly acquired land Rancho San Jose. Palomares and Vejar subsequently developed the town. In 1848, Mexico ceded California to the United States which brought the first American settlers to the area.
In 1875, there was a contest to name the new settlement which was won by a local man, who suggested the name Pomona—honoring an ancient Roman goddess of fruit. Indeed, in 1880, vineyards thrived in the area and Pomona was known for growing grapes, selling raisins and making wine. In the 1890s, the vineyards were replaced with citrus orchards and olive groves. In the 1920s, Pomona was known as the “Queen of the Citrus Belt.”
Pomona was incorporated in 1888. In the 20th century there was a rapid expansion of the Los Angeles metropolitan area, resulting in Pomona’s population boom. Pomona is currently the seventh largest city in Los Angeles County, and has developed a diversified economy including software, glass, cosmetic and paper goods. It is home to California State Polytechnic University. Pomona hosts the LA County fair, the Pomona Swap Meet & Classic Car Show, and the NHRA Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.
