Lakeside was founded and became quite prosperous on the edict and age-old wisdom that, no matter the epoch, people will pay handsomely for a great view.
Its development began in 1886, with a rather large land buyout (about 6600 acres) around the naturally occurring Lindo Lake. El Cajon Valley Land Company’s business gambit was brazen and fortified by the almost majestic vistas and serene panoramas surrounding this area. It instantly began to promote the new venture as a town. Building, aside from the usual accoutrements that makes a city center, an 80-room Victorian Style inn, the Lakeside Hotel. Their general idea was not only to attract tourist but possible investors to the bucolic region.
Three years later, after some acrobatic lobbying and finagling, the company managed to entice the railroad system to pass through its land. This was, at were, the proverbial spark that ignited the powder keg,
By 1904 small business were propping up like wildflowers around the hotel. The land price of the land had tripled in less than 15 years, and the investment was paying off in a big way.

Lakeside, due to Gay’s obsession with fast things, transformed into a headline beauty in 1907, when Barney Oldfield set a new land speed record on the track’s opening day.
