History & History Related Items

This area is known for its Avocado growing. They were first planted here in 1912 and have flourished ever since. Because of the good climate and the fertile soil, crops are easy to grow in the area.
Settlers first came to the Fallbrook area around 1869. The Vital Reche family is one of the prominent early settlers. It was this family that named the town Fall Brook, after their former home in Pennsylvania.
The town was platted in 1885 as part of a railroad project. Among the older buildings in here is the Reche Clubhouse. It was originally the first school in Fallbrook. The school, though abandoned in 1939 as a school, still serves the community. Another older building still in use is one of the church buildings from 1890. The museum here helps new and old residents alike see the efforts of the past and how they have helped the present.
