Julian Information and Highlights
Julian is one of San Diego’s most fascinating towns. An official California Historical landmark and an area defined by Zoning Ordinance as a Historical District, Julian’s past is so embedded in frontier ways and pioneer mentally, of the US sprit, that even its local culinary hallmark is its apple pie.
Julian’s history began at the far end of the American Civil War, in 1869. A former slave, A.E Coleman, recently emancipated by Lincoln’s sacrifice, was crossing over a creek when a glint of shiny yellow caught his eye. That glint, would set the region on a fevered fire, the minute it was identified as gold.
Coleman quickly retrieved his frying pan and began shifting the stream’s bed. In less then a fortnight, Coleman had enough booty in his rug sack to buy the claim and setup the Coleman Mining District.
News spread like wildfire and soon, by the start of 1870s, the area had evolved into a tent city. Gold rush mania blossoming in very prospector’s heart. Overnight the region was inundated by all sorts of individuals and business. Julian began to take shape.
Meanwhile, as miners wrestled gold from deep within the Earth, James Madison decided to take advantage of the spots clear fresh air. He brought in a wagon load of apple trees and planted them up by the mountains. The landscape changed as these little oaks became giants and started producing quality fruit. Julian staked a new claim in the area, a claim not out of minerals and rocks, but out of ruby red apples that became the envy of the land. Julian’s Apple Pies, produced by the offsprings of these trees, are still a big product in the region… A product that is even internationally exported to faraway lands.
In modern days, Julian’s gold rush and mining community has subsided. The town evolving into a charming mountain resort with a very lively past, excellent panoramas, historic tours and perhaps one of the best apple pies in the United States.
Julian undergoes more drastic temperatures and higher precipitation than much of southern California. It also receives snow in winter, which accumulates mostly in March. This last bit draws in the crowds from San Diego and other waterfront cities, where it does not snow. Average yearly snowfall from 1893 to 2012 has been 22 inches. Meanwhile, summers have been known to be rather hot, particularly the months of July and August.
Aside from its almost endless array of natural bounty, Julian is a history buff’s dream come true. Each slab of wood, each pebble on the street and each building glowing with the intensity of an exciting past. In Julian you’ll be able to travel deep within mining shafts, walkabout old railroad and visit derelict camps and ranches from that gold rush epoch of the late 19th century. Meanwhile, due to Julian’s extreme temperature changes, wine enthusiast will discover a buffet of local vineyards specializing not only in intoxicating grape juice but in hot apple cider.
One of the main pillars of Julian’s local economy is its tourist trade. With that said, you’ll find within its boundaries an army of gift shops, souvenir stands and local boutiques brimming with manufactured goods imported right from inside the state. Leather shops, local markets, antique stores, dress cottages and even a year round Christmas store.
