I have passed by this wonderful gem of a city. I finally took the opportunity to stop and explore old town Temecula. It was suggested by a wonderful fellow VTer travelgourmetthat I take the time to explore and I am so glad I did.
The Legend~A thousand years ago, as the mist rolled over the hills Nahachish, an Indian leader spoke word the words "Temecula" as the rays of the sun broke through the mist. From that day, the valley has been know as Temecula, sunlight through the mist.
A New Era~The first Butterfield arrived in Temecula 1858, the Post Office was established on April 22, 1859, and later, the Railway signified a new era in Temecula. Just after the turn of the century, Walter Vail began his cattle ranch the eventually covered 87,500 acres that covered in and around Temecula. The Temecula of today began in 1964 when Kaiser Industries purchased the ranch and started the Rancho California master plan. The City of Temecula was incorporated on December 1, 1989.
