Temecula Valley Historical Society learns the history of Camp Pendleton

Barbara Greenbush from the Camp Pendleton Historical Society shares the history of the land on which Camp Pendleton now sits with members of the Temecula Valley Historical Society during a presentation, July 23. Did you know that even though the United States Marine Corps had purchased the 125,000 acres that would become Camp Pendleton in 1942, there was a civilian family that lived on the base until 1967? That was just a small fraction of historical information that Barbara Greenbush from the Camp Pendleton Historical Society shared with members of the Temecula Valley Historical Society during a presentation, July 23. She told the story of Camp Pendleton's rich and varied history - starting with the time when Native Americans lived on the land, to the Spanish settlements and subsequent Mexican takeover, to the formation of Rancho Santa Margarita y Las Flores.
