EXPLORE LOOMIS

LOOMIS – A SMALL TOWN IS LIKE A BIG FAMILY

As you enter the Foothills, you’ll come to Loomis, a friendly old-fashioned community with a small town charm. The rural atmosphere offers a lifestyle reminiscent of days gone by, complete with modern services and unique restaurants and shopping opportunities.

FOLLOW THE LOOMIS LEGACY LOOP

The Loomis Mural Project pays tribute to the town’s rich agricultural history. The Loomis Legacy Loop self-guided tour gives residents and visitors to Loomis a close-up look at 15 fruit packing label murals. The murals are reproductions of some of the colorful labels used by area ranchers and growers to identify the fruit packed in the wooden crates they used for shipping for nearly 70 years. The Loomis Mural Project is one way of remembering the town’s past, keeping it alive and sharing it with current and future generations.
