Terminal Island Japanese Memorial

The Terminal Island Japanese Memorial was dedicated in 2002 at a site along Fish Harbor across from Southwest Marine. Created through the efforts of the Terminal Islanders Club, the memorial serves as a reminder of the island’s former Japanese-American community, their evacuation and forced removal in 1942, and the once-thriving fishing village at Terminal Island.

Belmont High School

Belmont High School garnered national attention for the role it, along with four other Los Angeles high schools, played in the East L.A. Chicano Student Walkouts (Blowouts) of March 1968. In the 1990s, Belmont High was one of the nation's largest schools with over 5,000 students.
