La Verne is a suburb of Los Angeles (LA), approximately 30 miles east of downtown LA. It was founded in 1887 when Isaac Wilson Lord, a Los Angeles businessman, persuaded the Santa Fe Railroad to extend its line through this area where he owned considerable property. Today, La Verne is a city of more than 30,000 residents and a well balanced community with a good mix of residential, commercial and industrial features.
La Verne is home to many fine institutions and facilities among them are the University of La Verne, Brackett Field Airport as well as several fine public and private schools. As one of the most desirable communities in metropolitan Southern California, La Verne is a progressive city that has retained much of its small town charm.
