Years after the establishment of Franciscan missions, San Juan Capistrano found itself along the traveled path to Northern California gold fields. This led to a boom in the establishment of homes, stores, and even the addition of a hotel. After the California railroad produced a more efficient manner of transportation, even the local agriculture saw significant prosperity. Over the years, San Juan has become a destination for those wanting a glimpse of early California life, as the city has made substantial efforts to preserve the unique history of this area.
