National City Real Estate
National City is the second oldest city in San Diego County. It was incorporated in 1887 and is located just south of the city limits of San Diego and just 10 miles north of the Mexican border. National City thrives on its proximity to the Port of San Diego, as a gateway to Mexico and its pleasant year-round climate.

California Indians were the first inhabitants of the area that is now National City. After the Indians, the land was acquired by Mission San Diego de Alcala and was taken over by soldiers of the Presidio to use as a grazing area for their horses. The area was referred to as The Ranch of the King - or Rancho Del Rey in Spanish. The California Governor, Pio Pico, eventually gave over the land to his brother-in-law, Don Juan Forester who dubbed the area El Rancho de la Nacion.

Modern-day National City was started by brothers Warren, Levi, Frank and George Kimball, who as a group purchased the land in the year 1868. The house that was built by Frank Kimball was billed as the first modern house in San Diego. The home featured a bath tub and running water. The new town he was building was named National City.

The Kimball brothers tried for a number of years to get National City linked to the east by railroad, to no avail, even though some track was laid. 1871 saw the completion of the first wharf that reached into the deep channel. One of the worst ventures in the area was silk worm farms. The farms failed but the worms lived on for several years, feeding off of native area brush.

The newspaper, the National City Record, was first published in 1882 and is one of the antecedents of the San Diego Daily Transcript. The National City News is its successor.

The city was touted on the East Coast as having the best climate on Earth. New residents flocked in from all over the country to avoid cold winter weather.
