Due east from downtown Los Angeles on Interstate 10, Pomona, California is best known as the home of the Los Angeles County Fair, held every year in September. Originally part of the Mexican land grant Rancho San Jose, the area which would become Pomona was settled by soldiers and cattle ranchers Ygnacio Palomares and Ricardo Vejar in the 1830’s. Between 1850 and 1855 Palomares built the Adobe de Palomares, a one-story adobe house which came to be the center of life on the rancho. In the 1930’s the adobe was acquired by the city of Pomona and restored to appear as it did when first built. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and considered an excellent depiction of life in early California. American settlers began to arrive in the late 1840’s after the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo made California part of the United States. Soon enough farmers began planting fruit trees in the rich soil and by the 1880’s the area was known for its quality citrus. Not surprisingly, the city came to be known as Pomona, after the Roman goddess of fruit trees and orchards. By the 1920’s Pomona had acquired the nickname “Queen of the Citrus Belt” and was considered one of the most affluent places in California. Today the city is diverse with a large Latino population. In 2005 Pomona elected Norma Torres as mayor. She was the first woman of Guatemalan heritage to hold such a position in the United States.
A Pomona tutor will be able to keep you caught up on your studies so you can take time away from the books to enjoy Pomona and the rest of the greater Los Angeles area. Ever since 1922 Pomona has been the home of the Los Angeles County Fair at the 543-acre fairgrounds known as Fairplex. Held for three weeks in the fall, the fair is one of the largest in the nation with average yearly attendance topping one million visitors. The fair features livestock competitions, concerts, a traditional carnival and the California Heritage Square historical exhibit. For many years, the fair also hosted horse racing but closed the racing facility in 2014.
Pomona is also home to the Wally Parks National Hot Rod Association Motorsports Museum which opened in 1998 right next door to Fairplex. The 28,500-square-foot museum features vintage and historical racing vehicles as well as photographs, documents and artifacts from over 60 years of motorsports history. The museum’s collection includes Indy cars from A.J. Foyt, a 1932 Ford Highboy Roadster and dragsters driven by the likes of Don “The Snake” Prudhomme.
For those interested in the visual arts, a visit to the American Museum of Ceramic Arts is a unique experience. The museum showcases both hand-made and factory produced ceramics from all over the world. The museum houses an impressive collection of Mettlach ceramics including elaborately painted vases, plates and tea pots. Mettlach is an area in Germany known for its fine ceramics and porcelain. One of the highlights of the museum is the 78-foot mural painted by renowned California artist Millard Sheets. The mural, known as “Panorama of the Pomona Valley” depicts the one hundred years of history before Pomona became a city.
