When you take the time to learn about and explore Temescal Valley, you’ll find that it’s a place rooted in history. And there are plenty of landmarks to check out around town.
Two centuries ago in 1818, Leandro Serrano, a soldier at Mission San Luis Rey, raised livestock, planted orchards and vineyards and established adobe homes for himself and his family on what he called Rancho Temescal. The remnants of his two tanning vats used to make leather from cow hides have been restored and marked by a plaque.
As for the land where Serrano lived on, the Serrano Boulder stands where he constructed his first adobe in 1824—the first residence in Riverside County. And a plaque marks the site of his third adobe home, where his family lived until 1898.
Located on Temescal Canyon Road, the Old Temescal Road marker stands as another California historical landmark. This road played a major role in Southern California history as a major route for gold seekers, the military and postal service. And on this route was Butterfield Stage Station, where mail was delivered, horses changed and passengers given rest and a meal. The landmark for the station now lives at the Shops at Dos Lagos near the lakes.
It’s a big year for Temescal Valley, which just turned 200 years old! You can join in on the Bicentennial Celebration throughout the year with events and activities. For more information, visit the We Are Temescal Valley website.

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.
