The Lost Town of Bernardo

These places once bustled with life. Each town boasted its own general store, blacksmith shop, and school. Many were stagecoach and railroad stops. Each was a market town for farmers and ranchers in far-flung valleys where livestock often outnumbered actual residents. These were the “lost ancestors” of today’s San Diego County cities and neighborhoods. Their residents built the foundation on which our modern communities could grow. This book is the first in a series about “lost towns in San Diego County.”

Soft cover, 35 pages, fully illustrated. (ISBN 978-0-9822671-4-1)
