Julian, CA - "A Nice Town To Visit"
Following the very helpful and
informative information published by the Julian Chamber of Commerce will be
random color photos of this unique town located in northeast San Diego County, CA.
It all started in 1869-1870. This is a wonderful town for a family
outing. Lots of apple trees and lots of hot apple pie. Hot apple pie
is especially good with a generous serving of ice cream or a big piece of cheese.
Smile when you say that. Remember to say, "Howdy."

Julian was founded following the Civil War, when displaced Confederate
Veterans from Georgia headed West to seek their fortunes in a new,
mostly unsettled land. Among these were cousins Drue Bailey and Mike
Julian, who found a lush meadow between Volcan Mountain and the
Cuyamacas to their liking. They were there in 1869 when cattleman Fred
Coleman found the first flecks of gold in a creek. It was San Diego
County's first and only gold rush.
town was named Julian, in honor of Mike, who later was elected San Diego
County Assessor. The town was never big, at the most boasting a
population of about 600---more than reside within the historic district
today. Rumor has it that Julian almost became San Diego's county seat.
gold rush was short-lived, nearly over within a decade. But the pioneers
stayed and began farming the rich land. While many crops were planted
and animals pastured, Julian proved to be a fine place to grow apples.
Apples continue to be produced in Julian. Their sweet, fresh flavor
lures thousands to the mountains each fall, when visitors will find
fruit stands overflowing with crisp fruit, homemade cider and other
