Loomis, California was founded in 1850, originally named “The Grove” by gold miners who settled along Secret Ravine. The area was home to the Nisenan people, a branch of the Maidu Native American tribe. Since then, the town’s name has changed several times:

  • 1861: The name changes to “Placer” when the Placer Post Office opens on the site
  • 1862: The name changes to “Smithville” in honor of L.G. Smith, a prominent leader
  • 1869: The name changes to “Pino” after the arrival of the Central Pacific Railroad
  • 1890: On May 28th the town was named “Loomis” after James Oscar Loomis (1830-1895), a pioneer who was a store and saloon keeper, railroad express agent and postmaster

Loomis was the second largest fruit-shipping station in Placer County in the early 20th century. Here are the packing sheds that were a part of Loomis history:

  • High Hand Fruit Sheds: Built in 1926 by the Loomis Fruit Growers Association (LFGA) as their central packing plant. The sheds were one of seven in Loomis that shipped thousands of pounds of fruit nationally for decades.
  • Blue Goose Fruit Shed: Built in 1945 on Taylor Road between King Road and Webb Street. The shed sorted, packed, and shipped fruit nationwide for three decades.
  • Blue Anchor Fruit Shed: Closed in 1985 and destroyed by fire in 2002.

The Loomis Basin Historical Society was founded in 1993 to preserve the heritage of the Loomis Basin people and communities.


We created this website to provide a platform for local businesses and residents to connect and build community. Our focus is hyperlocal content specifically for Loomis, Newcastle and Penryn.


It started in Loomis, but we’re expanding to other cities in Placer county, then on to Sacramento and El Dorado counties. By the end of 2024, we hope to reach our goal of having 32 online communities!
