El Cajon Real Estate
El Cajon actually means "big box". The city is located in the heart of the El Cajon valley. Just below the San Diego foothills. The San Diego Mission Friars found the advantages of the valley were in the herding of their cattle. The pastures of the valley being at the bottom of the valley provided a natural barrier to keep the cattle from straying. The valley provided watershed as well.

When the Missions were secularized, the valley was given over to a woman named Dona Maria Antonio Estudillo to fulfill a Government debt. She was the wife of Don Miguel de Pedroena. The government grant included the areas that were developed into Bostonia, Santee, Johnstown, part of Grossmont, Glenview and El Cajon.

The land was sold to Isaac Lankershim by the Pedroenas and was divided up for the farming of wheat. The land was eventually cultivated to grow crops of citrus, grapes, raisins and avocados.

Goldminers from up in Julian would pass through the valley on their way to San Diego and would camp at a site which is now the intersection of Magnolia and Main Streets. Eventually a hotel and businesses offering goods and services grew up around the campsite. The area of El Cajon grew at a slow pace until the conclusion of World War II. After that the population grew at a rapid pace.

The El Cajon of today is a vibrant city that offers a variety of shopping, restaurant and galleries. The East County Performing Arts Center makes its home here as well. The downtown area of El Cajon has received Main Street Certification from both Federal and State agencies.

The Mother Goose parade is an annual tradition that has run for 50 years. It has evolved to become the largest parade in the county of San Diego as well as the U.S.
