an acronym for the Vail Ranch Restoration Association, had its beginning
in the mid 1990's when a small cadre of Temecula residents who were
interested in preserving the lore and legends of Temecula learned
that portions of the Vail Ranch site might be razed to make room
Realizing that an important local historical site
was in jeopardy, they formed an organization that is dedicated to
assuring that the area's structures still standing will be preserved
so that our children and our children's children might come to know
and enjoy the colorful history of the Vail Ranch and the surrounding
The group got moving and soon focused its efforts
on lobbying for preservation of the buildings and the site.
They sought support from the community, created a California Non-Profit
501(c)(3) organization and lobbied elected officials to assure that
this wonderful inheritance would not be lost. Their unselfish
efforts to the preservation of the Ranch headquarters and a sense
of history vital to the Temecula Valley have been successful!
