Origin of place name:
Luoma Lake, looking southeast
FINNISH SETTLER Alfred Luoma pre-empted Crown land at Granite Bay in 1906, according to historian and author Jeanette Taylor. Taylor notes that Luoma arrived at Granite Bay "from Sointula when the utopian community failed." A tributary of Luoma Creek passes through the land settled by the Finn. Luoma Creek's headwaters are at Luoma Lake, and the creek flows into Little Main Lake. See our drone flyovers of Luoma Lake here.
