Temescal Valley celebrated its 200th anniversary this year, and Temescal Heritage Foundation has been bringing the community plenty of festivities during the year-long bicentennial celebration.
Two centuries ago in 1818, Leandro Serrano, a soldier at Mission San Luis Rey, was sent here with a permit to graze cattle on about five leagues of land. Serrano raised livestock, planted orchards and vineyards and established adobe homes for himself and his family on what he called Rancho Temescal. A California historical landmark, the Serrano Boulder still stands where he constructed his first adobe in 1824.
There’s much more to learn about Temescal Valley’s history, and the Temescal Heritage Foundation is sharing the story throughout the anniversary celebration. Join your fellow residents in learning more about the roots of our surrounding community—and don’t miss the exciting events still to come.
Stay tuned for more information and be sure to join in on the special festivities. Celebrations like this only happen every 200 years.
