Today's photo shows Loara Elementary School, 1601 West Broadway, in Anaheim in 1960. The 1888 bell from the original Loara school building is displayed in front. The name "Loara" can be traced back to a Southern Pacific depot named in 1899 -- But it's hard to pin down just how the depot got its name in the first place.
The Orange County Historical Society and Anaheim Historical Society will hold a joint meeting at Loara Elementary School's auditorium tonight, Tues., March 15th, at 7:00 p.m. Contributors to OCHS's Orange Countiana historical journal (Vol. 6) will discuss and sign their articles. Copies of the journal will be available for sale.
The Tustin Area Historical Society is sponsoring their "Tour of Tustin's History" Annual Promenade of Homes and Gardens, on Sat., May 14, 9am-3pm. Visit their website for details.
