Celebrating Carson’s 50th

We are proud to be part of the community as we celebrate the people and organizations that make Carson a vibrant, diverse city. Shell first came to the Carson area in 1924. As we grew alongside the community, we hosted many of the official founders’ meetings at our offices in Carson. We feel privileged to be one of the city’s founding members in 1968 and wish a happy golden anniversary to the City of Carson!

See the people celebrating with Carson!
