The rediscovery of Andrew McNally’s Windermere Ranch olive crusher

Considered the Crown Jewel of La Mirada History

Campo~Although the Dichiara family was based in La Mirada for only around 20 years, they will forever hold an integral part of its history.

La Mirada city founder Andrew McNally created and built his olive oil empire, the first industry in La Mirada, beginning in the late nineteenth century and well into the twentieth.

The factory where he processed the fruit was located on his Windermere Ranch and at one time produced some of the finest, purest oil available in the world.

When the Long Beach earthquake struck in 1933 it damaged the building and production was halted. (more)

Spring is upon us, and I encourage everyone to participate in all that the City of La Mirada has to offer. There is something for everyone in La Mirada.

Please come support this Farmers Market every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking area near the La Mirada Activity Center. (more)
