The Town of San Jacinto, 1886

The town of San Jacinto emerged in the San Jacinto Valley in the mid-1800's. The town served the agricultural community that dominated the region. The early settlers in the area were cattle ranchers, but by the late 1800's the valley was covered in rich orchards of walnut and citrus trees.

Included are border illustrations of public buildings, businesses, and well-known residences of 1886.
