We name our property “Cave Landing Ranch”
September 4th, 2009
Our lot is #2. We chose it because it has the most spectacular views among the three lots that are for sale. Additionally, this lot contains an already-disturbed area that provides a logical building site for a house.
About this time, we decided to call our property “Cave Landing Ranch.” The general area has been known as Cave Landing since the 1870s, when Captain David Mallagh used a steel cable pulley system to unload sailing ships here. Our particular lot was part of a cattle ranch whose original Spanish owner was Miguel Avila (1840s). So “Cave Landing Ranch” is a logical name to use because it reflects the history of the site. Throughout my blog posts, whenever I refer to “Cave Landing Ranch”, or to “Cave Landing”, I am referring to this lot #2.
