Cambria California Central Coast

The little town of Cambria is nestled among beautiful pine trees and the Pacific Ocean. The area where Cambria is today started out as the property of Mission San Miguel. After the Spanish lost their claim to California, the land was sold and granted out. During the 1860’s, investors eagerly purchased the prime central coast land.

One man built a store, another a hotel, another a tavern, and so on. The interesting fact is that the first five men were all named George. Lull’s store, on the corner of Bridge and Main Streets, was built by George Lull in 1865. Cambria ended up growing very quickly and soon was the second largest town in San Luis Obispo County.
