San Diego County Place Names, A To Z

From the earliest peoples of the county to the later settlers, each wave of immigration has left its mark on San Diego County in place names. From Spanish land grants, Mexican Ranchos, Indian Villages, and gold mines to family farms, tiny hamlets, and short-lived post offices – each has made a mark in history by putting a place name on a map. Here are over 1500 of these revealing portals into history.
