I grew up in the more central part of San Diego County, so everything I knew of anything "historic" was a 20 minute drive south to Old Town. However, when we returned to San Diego county a few years ago, I was thrilled to discover historic buildings sprinkled throughout
north county. Two days ago, I went up to Rancho Guajome Adobe, located in Vista.
I had no idea that this 112 acre Rancho even existed, but it is part of the San Diego County Park system. It was built in 1852 and is a traditional Spanish-Mexican Colonial style hacienda.
Only the grounds were open, as I came on a Monday.
