The history of Escondido can be traced back to 1851 when two brothers, John and James McNally, settled on a tract of land along the Santa Ana River near present-day downtown Escondido. In 1866, McNally Brothers Land and Water Company was formed and began developing what is now downtown Escondido. The company built an irrigation system that allowed for the cultivation of citrus fruits and vegetables in addition to grapes, olives, and other crops. In 1889, the Southern Pacific Railroad came through town and established a depot; this helped spur even more development in downtown Escondido.
