ESCONDIDO, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Escondido lies in a secluded Valley in San Diego County, California. Escondido in Spanish means “hidden,” as a result, Escondido is sometimes referred to as the Hidden Valley. Escondido is 30 miles from San Diego and one of the oldest cities in San Diego County. Escondido has its roots in agriculture and is considered a suburban community of San Diego City. According to the 2020 census, Escondido’s population is over 151,000.
Escondido is the ancestral home of the Kumeyaay people, that generally encompass the Diegueno, Tapai and Ipai tribes. Other tribes made their home in the area, including the Cupeno, the Luiseño, and Cahuilla Indians. In 1769, Spain established missions in the area near Escondido. In 1843, the Escondido Valley was granted to Juan Baptista Alvarado, who named it “El Rincon del Diablo”— translating to the “Devil’s Corner.” On December 6, 1846, just southeast of Escondido, California’s deadliest battle with Mexico took place at San Pasqual. Kit Carson participated in the battle. In 1848, Mexico ceded California to the United States.
Around 1855, Judge Oliver Witherby of San Diego, purchased El Rincon del Diablo, and eventually established a gold mine. In 1885, El Rincon del Diablo was sold to a group of Los Angeles investors, that eventually incorporated into the Escondido Land and Town Company. In 1888, Escondido was incorporated as a city.
Lake Wolford was established after the Bear Valley Reservoir was built in 1895. Bear Valley Reservoir’s name was changed in 1924, to Lake Wolford Dam. The Reservoir contributed to Escondido’s agricultural growth, resulting in numerous lemon groves, olive groves, grapes, avocados, and hay and grain farming. Escondido’s population grew rapidly after World War II and light industry was developed within the city.
Escondido is home to approximately 15 parks and has easy access to the nearby San Diego Zoo Safari Park, located in the San Pasqual Valley. Escondido’s cultural attractions include, the California Center for the Arts, the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum and the old Escondido Historic District. In regard to businesses, Escondido is home to the Stone Brewing Co. and Dr. Bronner’s Soaps.
