Tejon Ranch History podcast

Nov 15, 2017

This episode focuses on the waning years of the California Gold Rush, its positive (and not-so-positive) effects on Tejon Ranch, as well as Beale’s continuing relationship with the Ranch’s native Indians and sometimes tenuous relationship with the Federal government. The big news though: Beale convinces the U.S. Army in establishing a military presence at the Ranch to “keep the peace” between settlers and Indians and guard a major road though Grapevine Canyon. This will lead to a more organized Ranch and set the stage for years to come.
