Coronavirus / COVID-19 Information

This is the first world-wide pandemic we've seen in our lifetime, and we're in it together - in sickness and health. Since social distancing, self-quarantine and best health practices are in place (as they always should be), if you have to make a run to the store, why not ask a neighbor/friend/relative who may not (or should not) be able to get out so easily, if you can pick-up something for them, providing that something is still on the shelf.

Irving Gill-Designed Bridge Celebrates 100th Birthday

In 2012 our Bridge celebrated its 100th birthday, and after a century -- it was time for a facelift. The City of Torrance was in charge of the rehabilitation, repair and beautification of the Historic Pacific Electric Railroad Bridge, listed in the National Register of Historical Places. The restoration project consisted of concrete repairs of cracks and spalls on the bridge deck, girders, columns, wingwall, soffit, wooden railing replacement, surface cleaning and vegetation grubbing, and lighting. The improvements met the Secretary of Interior Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties as well as current California and Federal building and Public Works Codes and standards.

Construction began Wednesday, February 13th, with a tentative completion date of Wednesday, May 8th, 2013. Historical Note: This graceful railroad bridge, designed in 1913 by the renowned Dominguez Land Corp.'s in-house architect, Irving Gill, allowed the trains to carry the raw materials and finished goods of Torrance's factories so that they would not block Los Angeles-bound motor traffic on Torrance Blvd. The bridge also carried the noise and vibration of the rail cars away from the city's downtown Torrance depot and made it possible for goods manufactured here to be shipped via Los Angeles and San Pedro.

The bridge is located on Torrance Blvd., west of Western Ave. In 1989, it became the second property in Torrance to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Torrance Centennial Plaza at El Prado Park 1912 - 2012

Centennial Plaza includes a time capsule, benches, landscaping and personalized commemorative bricks. The Plaza is located in the original footprint of the City at the Cravens Avenue end of El Prado Park in Old Torrance.

El Prado Park was the first "parkland" in Torrance, and was designed by Fredrick Law Olmsted, Jr (Olmsted Brothers), one of the premier landscape architects of the 20th century who was hired by Jared Sidney Torrance to design the Modern Industrial City we call Torrance.

The plaza was dedicated on Sunday, September 16th, 2012.

    THS Yearly Memorial for Reading of the Names on the Wall

    Each year, on Monday, Memorial Day, the Torrance Historical Society conducts a memorial service, which includes the reading of the 146 Names on the Torrance Veterans' Memorial Wall, for Torrance service personnel who gave their lives in U. S. military actions. Those Names include war losses from World War I to those in the Iraq and Afghanistan War. The service takes place at the City of Torrance Veterans' Memorial Wall at Memorial Plaza, Torrance Blvd. at Maple

    "On Memorial Day, we will be grateful for the gift of those who never came home. We will remember -- every day is Memorial Day. We will pray that we may never add another name to that cold, black wall," noted Jerry Ronan, Torrance Historical Society Board Member and WWII Veteran.

    Here is the YouTube video of the event on Monday, May 24, 2015: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJLeV6_kSAI

    Please visit the below THS web page to view the list of the 146 names on the wall. The Torrance Historical Society continues its project to gather and preserve the too-short life story of each of the 146 Torrance military personnel who gave their lives in service to our country. As of May of 2015, they are halfway to their goal of putting a face on each name. To volunteer for this project and read more about it and to view the list of the 146 names on the wall, please view the below THS web page. http://www.torrancehistoricalsociety.org/opportunities/namesonthewall.html

    Torrance, CA 90505

    Seaside Heroes Park honors Army soldiers Cpl. Joseph Anzack, Jr., 20, Cpl. Micah S. Gifford, 27, and Capt. Matthew C. Ferrara, 24,

    These three young men grew up in this area, attending Seaside Elementary Calle Mayor Middle, and South High Schools. As boys they enjoyed scouting, baseball, track and field, wrestling and football but as young men they all chose to serve our country.

    Answering this call to duty, they all became members of the United States Army. Each made the ultimate sacrifice giving their lives while at war in Iraq (Joseph and Micah) and Afghanistan (Matthew). They died within an eleven month period (December 2006 - November 2007).

    Let everyone who visits this park realize the sacrifice made by these Soldiers so that we may live in freedom, and may our "Seaside Heroes" be remembered and inspire future generations.
