The historic town of Julian is tucked away in the pine-covered mountains of San Diego County approximately 60 miles northeast of the City of San Diego. The elevation of the town site is 4200 feet with some of the surrounding mountain peaks at almost 6000 feet. Gold discoveries in 1869 caused the area to boom. Many of the miners were captivated by Julian’s climate and beauty and they remained after the gold rush ended to become ranchers and fruit growers.
