A clear, readable presentation of the history of one of California s most charming coastside towns: Half Moon Bay (south of San Francisco).
The town developed around one historic house still in existence, and remodeled into a warm and picturesque bed and breakfast inn. This historic building was built by a famous figure, Mr. Zaballa, the town s first merchant, savvy in developing real estate, and deeply involved in the layout of the streets and blocks that are today s downtown business district. Spanishtown as it was called at the time, was but a small part of the wide stage that saw the beginning of a commercial explosion forming today s California.
From the local Native-Americans and the Spanish explorers through the Gold Rush, railroads, agriculture and technology ahs come a modern yet quaint little town!
