The fire engines rolled for the last time two decades ago. Gone, too, are the volunteer firemen and their annual dress ball, where, local legend has it, many couples fell in love. But the adobe brick fire station at Los Alamitos Boulevard and Katella Avenue still stands. In its new incarnation, it is filled with historical treasures rather than firefighting equipment and has a new name: the Los Alamitos Museum.

Ten public facilities, including City Hall, have to undergo structural changes to be more accessible to the disabled, but the city does not have the money to finance the needed improvements. Officials said this week that the improvements, which will cost an estimated $45,000, would likely be funded from a Housing and Community Development Block Grant, which the city receives annually from the federal government.

Some towns have histories that reach back five generations, others seem to have sprung up in the past 30 years. The area around the Armed Forces Reserve Center in Los Alamitos is grounded in history yet relatively young. The area took on its current attributes just 50 years ago, when the Naval Air Station moved from Terminal Island near Long Beach Harbor to Los Alamitos. The 1,300-acre tract was home to Navy and Marine fliers; Australian fliers trained in naval air tactics there as well.

Los Alamitos can be a shell of a place to visit: The World War II bombardier mannequin at Los Alamitos Museum is more than slightly shellshocked, there are oysters on the half shell at the Fish Co., and the turtles at nearby El Dorado Nature Center in Long Beach wear their shells proudly. 1 to 2 p.m.: Keep an eye out for specials at the Fish Co. One assumes everything at the restaurant is fresh, so when items are listed as specials, perhaps they're extra fresh.

In its early days, this was a rough-and-tumble town, a place where immigrants worked in a sugar beet factory and drunken evenings ended at brothels or in violence in the streets. "This was not a very nice town," said Althea Miller, docent at the Los Alamitos Museum. "The sheriff from Santa Ana didn't want to come here."
