About Nipomo

Nipomo is an oceanside community in San Luis Obispo County. “Nipomo” is a Chumash word meaning “foot of the hill.” The original inhabitants of Nipomo were the Chumash, who have lived in the area for more than 9,000 years.

The founder of present-day Nipomo, William G. Dana of Boston, was a sea captain. Dana’s travels led him to California where he married Maria Josefa Carrillo of Santa Barbara. In 1837, the Mexican governor granted the 38,000-acre Rancho Nipomo to Captain Dana. The Dana Adobe, created in 1839, served as an important stop for travelers between the missions in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara. The adobe was a stagecoach stop and became a mail stop for the first regular mail route in California. By the 1880s the Dana descendants had built homes on the ranch and formed a town and sold streets to the general public. The Pacific Coast Railway came to Nipomo in 1882. Trains ran through Nipomo until 1930 and by the end of 1942, the tracks had been removed to support the World War II effort.
