Town #36: LOA est. 1878

Not far from Lyman is the county seat of Loa. Loa was named after Mauna Loa, a volcano in Hawaii, by Franklin Young. Franklin Young served a mission in Hawaii and was impressed by the volcano there.

The town sign is on top of a hill northwest of the town. Here is what looks like from the sign.
