In 1871, William Whitney Stow—a legal magnate and influential political figure whose most notable achievement was creating Golden Gate Park in San Francisco—purchased the incredible rich, lush land that became known as Rancho La Patera. Stow bought the land (1,100 acres) for his son for a whopping $28,600. The fertile soil quickly became home to almond and walnut tree orchards, and in 1875, 3,000 lemon trees were planted. Once the headquarters of Rancho La Patera, the beautiful original Stow House is now home to the Goleta Historical Society. You can visit this local cornerstone (and get a wonderful waff of the lemon orchards!) when you visit!
