El Segundo is a South Bay community of Los Angeles California near LAX

Our Community


El Segundo

History
In May of 1911, Standard Oil of Richmond, CA, in association with an oil company from Pennsylvania, selected the area between the present day city of El Segundo and Manhattan Beach to build an oil refinery. It is speculated that the name El Segundo, Spanish for “second,” derived from the fact that this was to be Standard Oil’s second California refinery.
The city remained a one-industry town until the 1920s, when Mine's Field, a landing strip used by early barnstormers, was chosen as the site for the new Los Angeles Municipal Airport. Then, in the mid-1950s, Southern California Edison purchased a 43-acre site for a major electrical generating station.

Today, the city encompasses over five square miles, spanning from the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on the north, to the Chevron Refinery on the south, to the Pacific Ocean on the west and Aviation Boulevard on the east. The city's population has leveled off at approximately 16,500 residents, which has enabled the community to preserve the small town intimacy and charm.
