History

“Pomona” was named after the Roman goddess of fruit trees, usually depicted as holding fruit and a pruning knife. In the first half of the century there were many citrus groves here. Now, there are virtually none. The Works Progress Administration renovated the town’s two-story schoolhouse about 1939. The building was given by the school board to the Town of Pomona and was used for town meetings until renovation work was done at the old fire station in 1984 and the meetings held there. On December 9, 1986, the name changes were officially made that changed the old Town Hall to the community center, naming the old fire station the Town Hall.
