History & History Related Items

Here is a history page for the area.

The official name for the city is El Paso de Robles. The name, El Paso de Robles, means the pass of the oaks and was probably named for the many oak trees which are found in the area. The local people, which included Salinan Indians and the Spanish padres also called the area, Agua Caliente, which means hot water or springs, probably for the underground mineral springs here.

The town was incorporated in 1889 and has grown tremendously since that time from 523 residents to about 25,000 in 2001.

Early on in the area history, people came to Paso Robles for the hot springs and their curing properties, but many also enjoyed the good weather when the came. Many hotels were built to accommodate the visitors and newcomers. Among these was the Paso Robles Inn, built in 1906 to replace the Paso Robles Hot Springs Hotel. Though many famous people visited the Inn, one of the most renowned was famed pianist, Ignace Paderewski. Many times he could be heard playing just for his own pleasure on the piano in the Inn.
