History & History Related Items

Rancho Santa Fe history:

The area which is Rancho Santa Fe now was once developed to grow eucalyptus trees for railroad ties. This was around 1906. Later, the wood was found to be unsuitable for the railroad ties and the project was stopped. The trees continued to grow and flourish. Many of the trees are still standing today amongst citrus groves and hills.

Residents of this area often refer to their community as "The Ranch." Rancho Santa Fe is a rather exclusive area. It is one of the ten wealthiest communities in the entire USA. Despite this wealth, the area has a low profile and privacy is a prized feature. The main street is Paseo Delicias. Here there are restaurants and small shops. The center of attraction for the village is architect Lillian Rice's creation the "Inn at Rancho Santa Fe." Horse trails abound in the hilly areas. Maintaining the low-key atmosphere here is helped by no sidewlaks, street lights or street addresses throughout Rancho Santa Fe.

In 1989, Rancho Santa Fe was designated as a State Historical Landmark by the state government. The Rancho Santa Fe Covenant was one of the first planned communities in the state of California. Large homesites are the norm in Rancho Santa Fe with most ranging from two to four acres each. Home prices range from $600,000 to $10 million.
