Portrero Real Estate
Little has changed since the town early start. Meaning "pasturing place" in Spanish, until the middle of the 19th century, the Potrero region was inhabited only by Kumeyaay Indians.
In 1868 Charlie McAlmond, a ship captain from San Diego, settled in the Potrero Valley and established a cattle ranch and farm. Others soon followed, becoming ranchers or wood cutters. The cordwood business flourished in this oak woodland, and large horse-drawn wagons hauled firewood and bark to San Diego.
Today the mountain town is much the way it was then-unspoiled with an abundance of wildlife.
