Escondido is located in northern San Diego County.  Its name translates as “hidden” in Spanish, which truly describes this little haven in the area as it lies below the rocky hills surrounding the area.  The city was founded in 1888, and is considered one of the oldest cities in the San Diego area.  It was originally settled by Native American tribes until Spain took control of the land starting in the late 1700’s. It wasn’t until the mid 1800’s when Mexico obtained control of the area from Spain.  During this time, the San Diego area was broken into large areas, known as “ranchos”.  Escondido was entitled “Rancho Rincon del Diablo in 1843 and given to Juan Bautista Alvarado by the Mexico governor.1 The US obtained the area from Mexico following a war that broke out in 1846.  Non-Hispanic settlers came to the area in the 1880’s, when a large group of land investors purchased a large section of the city, resulting in the city becoming incorporated in 1888.
