Pomona, California

Pomona, home to over 160,000 residents, is one of the largest cities in Los Angeles County, California. Pomona is situated between the Inland Empire and the San Gabriel Valley. In 1888, Pomona was incorporated as a city and became a charter city in 1911. The city is the site of the Fairplex, which hosts the L.A. County Fair and the NHRA Auto Club Raceway at Pomona, formerly known as Pomona Raceway.

Named in honor of the Roman goddess of fruit, the Pomona area was situated along a trade route used by Native Americans. In the early 1800s, Pomona was known as an "urban garden" and quickly became an economic leader in citrus. In the 1870s, the coming of the railroad spurred agriculture. Vineyards flourished in the 1880s, supplying the winemaking and raisin industries. Citrus orchards and olive groves replaced vineyards in the 1890s and, through its agricultural enterprises Pomona maintained an economic lead in the valley. Pomona continues to boast a progressive economy. Among the city’s top employers are Pomona Unified School District; Pomona Valley Hospital; California State Polytechnic University, Pomona; City of Pomona; and First Transit.
