History & History Related Items

Cousins, Drue Bailey and Mike Julian are credited with being the founders of Julian. They came here after the Civil War with others from the south to find a new life in this unsettled land. They took a liking to the area. The town was named for Mike Julian, one of the founders. Part of the local history is a short-lived gold rush in 1869 but many of the gold seekers decided to stay and began to farm and raise livestock. They found the area to be a good place for fruit trees, particularly apples. There are still many fruit stands in the area.
