9781891030383: Story of the town of Bolsa: Established in 1870

"This book is the Story of the Town of Bolsa, a small forming community in the heart of Southern California. Once the center of a vast Spanish Rancho, Bolsa Grande was a 41,500 acre cattle ranch in the heart of what would be Orange County. With it's roots deep in the Spanish Rancho days, Bolsa came to be in the early 1870's, with the breakup of the great ranchos. Four corners marked the hamlet of Bolsa, with a school, store, church and a dairy to indicate there was a town here. Although the livelihood of the people changed from cattle to crops, they always referred to their farms as ranches, using horses and mules to work the fields into the 1920s. Those crops changed over time, from celery to sugar beets to beans and peppers, because of the depletion of the soil. In 1927, Bolsa became nationally famous for the largest airplane to date, the Albatross. Charles Lindberg came to see the giant plane, for possible use in his upcoming historic Atlantic flight. With the invention of the giant plow, Bolsa now became famous worldwide. The Post Brothers, developed the giant equipment to clear the fields of silt. To this day, the largest plow in the world, sits on the Rancho Bolsa new the center of town. Later in 11955, Bolsa would also become the source of fastest dragster in the nation, with the help of Calvin Rice. Quite a history from just a small farming community in California."
