CITY OF EL SEGUNDO

Prior to El Segundo's incorporation in 1917, this area was part of "Rancho Sausal Redondo"​ ("Ranch of the Round Clump of Willows"​), a rancho with a land mass of nearly 25,000 acres which extended from the areas as far west of what is now Playa del Rey, as far east as Inglewood, and as far south as Redondo Beach. The land consisted of wheat and barley fields on which cattle and sheep grazed. In May 1911, five men representing the Standard Oil Company arrived here: Richard J. Hanna and J.E. Howell of the Eclipse refinery of Franklin, Pennsylvania and John Black, Henry Foster and William Rheem ... from the Standard Oil refinery in Point Richmond, a city 18 miles east of San Francisco). They were surveying the area as a potential site for their next oil refinery. What was required was an area adjacent to the seashore so their tankers could have appropriate access. The undeveloped nature of the site appealed to them because land costs had to be kept to a minimum. Also, the site had to be close to populated areas so it could attract enough employees. The "clump of willows"​ was just what Mr. Hanna's team was looking for. Lastly, this new site needed a name. Richard Hanna's wife, Virginia, deemed this expanse as "El Segundo"​, (Spanish for "the second one,"​) because the site was to be Standard Oil's second oil refinery in California (The Point Richmond refinery was already christened as "El Primero"​). Sometime later, a group of proud but unknown citizens had nicknamed it "El Segundo a nada"​ (Spanish for 'second to none'​). Standard Oil bought 840 acres of this land on June 11. The refinery opened for business, just five and a half months later, on November 27. On January 18, 1917, less than six years after the opening of the refinery, the City of El Segundo was incorporated. More
