CHL# 226 DON BERNARDO YORBA RANCHHOUSE SITE
Here Don Bernardo Yorba created the greatest rancho of California’s Golden Age, combining the Santa Ana Grant awarded to his father by the King of Spain in 1810 and lands granted to him by Governor José Figueroa in 1834. He was the third son of José Antonio Yorba, who came with Don Gaspar de Portolá in 1769 to establish California’s first family.
