The reconstructed Vallecito Stage Station, a California Historic site, as it appears today.
HISTORIC PANORAMAS VII
Vallecito Stage Station
By JOSEF and JOYCE MUENCHIn San Diego County, California, now off the mainline of travel, stands this adobe building—the restoredstage station where passengers on the old Butterfield Over-land stage route once stopped for refreshments.This is the Vallecito stage station, rebuilt accordingto its original design through the philanthropy of Dr. andMrs.Louis Strahlmann of San Diego in 1935.Originally this was on the route of Kearny's Army ofthe West. The first wheeled vehicles to come this waywere the wagons of Col. Philip St. George Cooke's Mor-mon Battalion in 1847. Two years later California-boundgold-seekers, after the long dusty trek across the desertfrom Yuma, found Vallecito a refreshing place for waterand rest.The old stage station is now reached by a very passa-ble road maintained by the California State Park organiza-tion.
