T

he Tehachapi community (Greater Tehachapi) is a mountain valley district including 50,000 acres of level land, embracing the Tehachapi, Brite, Cummings and Bear valleys, all with altitudes near 4,000 feet. The first known people to occupy the Tehachapi area were the American Indians known as the Kawaiisu (or, as they called themselves, Nu-oo-ah, meaning the People.)

The first permanent white settlers were John Moore and Amanda Brite, who came to the Tehachapi Valley in the fall of 1854 from Texas and three years later moved to Brite Valley, which bears their name. Other settlers like Grant P. Cuddeback, George Cummings and William C. Wiggins soon arrived on the scene and began raising cattle, hay and grain. They also developed a lumber trade.

A small community known as Williamsburg sprung up in the area of the present Golden Hills in the 1860s. For a time this community was also known as Tehichipa. Another town site was established by P.D. Greene. This second

The railroad engineers needed a long, level region at the top of the climb suitable for switching engines and rail cars. Such land was available at and near the Tehachapi site, and the summit about two miles east of the depot. The famed Tehachapi Loop made it possible for the trains to climb from the San Joaquin Valley and proceed through Tehachapi to Mojave, Los Angeles, Barstow and other eastern destinations. Much of the soil in the local valleys is a rich, decomposed granite and vegetable silt, deep and wonderfully productive. Old publications describe Tehachapi as “A location par excellence for the fruit grower.” Orchard production and agriculture began to flourish and the cement industry became a vital economic asset of the new community. These operations still continue. In addition, the persistent winds through the Tehachapi Pass have enabled nearby wind farms to become one of the world’s leading producers of electrical power from wind energy.

GREATER TEHACHAPI CHAMBER OF COMMERCE BUSINESS REFERRAL GUIDE

In 1909, the Tehachapi settlement was incorporated, and the town of Tehachapi was legally established. An act of the state legislature changed the town’s official name to City of Tehachapi in 1946. In 1932, the first state women’s prison was built in Cummings Valley. A 7.7 earthquake in 1952 did major damage to the city, including the prison. The inmates were moved to Frontera. In 1953, the state repaired the facility and made it a branch of the California Institution for Men at Chino. In the mid-1960s, a new medium security facility was built in Tehachapi. In the mid-1980s two maximum security prisons were constructed. In 1998, the prison, now known as the California Correctional Institution (CCI), was annexed into the city. CCI is currently the largest employer in the region, with almost 1,700 persons on its payroll. The building of Highways 58 and 14 placed Tehachapi within a one-hour commute of Bakersfield, Lancaster and Edwards Air Force Base. Because of a favorable climate, many working in these and other areas wished to live near Tehachapi. This led to the development of the nearby communities of Golden Hills, Bear Valley Springs, Stallion Springs and Sand Canyon. Today, when one says Greater Tehachapi, it includes all these additional communities and many more county residents as well.

Miners such as Peter D. Greene and John Hendrickson drifted into the Tehachapis and did some gold mining, but the real “gold” was found in the limestone deposits of the area. Kilns were soon built to burn the lime.

site was known as Greenwich and was located several miles east of Williamsburg/ Tehichipa. In 1876, the Southern Pacific Railroad came to the Tehachapi Valley and laid out its own town site named Tehachapi. Eventually, the businesses and people moved to Tehachapi and the former communities faded away.


Some historical facts about Tehachapi…

• Was the first settlement to celebrate the Fourth of July in Kern County

HERITAGE

• Was at the confluence of five rivers, millions of years ago • Is the location of five major global air currents • Has been the training grounds for many pilots and astronauts

The Tehachapi Museum is housed in the circa 1931 art deco building originally built to house a branch of the Kern County Library.

THE TEHACHAPI HERITAGE LEAGUE MUSEUM

T

he Tehachapi area has an extraordinarily rich past that spans the story of the American West from pre-history, Native American culture, early exploration by mountain men, padres, the Spanish ranchers and cowboys, through mining, railroading, farming, ranching, early aviation, wind energy and more, including the historic California Gold Rush. The Tehachapi Museum tells Tehachapi’s wonderful stories. Old-timers and newcomers alike come to hear, see, and touch the stories that make a community unique, stories that enrich people with the knowledge, humor and grit that created this community and inform its future.

The oldest house in town, the Errea House Museum, is located across the street at

311 S. Green Street. It is named for a Spanish Basque family who lived there for over 70 years. It is open during regular museum hours as a house museum showing a working class family’s way of life, circa 1900 to 1930. A brochure for a Walking Tour of historic buildings and homes is available at the Chamber as well as the Museum. The 1 to 1½ hour walking tour lets you see up close the small town charm of Tehachapi and passes by small downtown businesses where you can stop for refreshments or to shop with small town merchants. The newly renovated Tehachapi Museum is chock-full of items that will spark the imagination. You will find the femur of a mammoth (from the Ice Age), opium tins (from the railroad construction camps of the 1870s), a textile gallery that features clothing and household items, fossilized sharks teeth and a recreated blacksmith shop, complete with a one-horse drawn buggy. Photos show the devastation of one of the most powerful earthquakes in U.S. history, which virtually destroyed Tehachapi. You will see the actual mercantile store clock on display, that stopped at the exact time of the 1952 quake and that’s probably as close as you’ll want to get to that piece of our history. Photos show herds of sheep and cattle on Curry Street, being driven to the railroad stockyards. In a new addition to the Museum, the Mark and Jessie Milano Gallery houses an informative exhibition that showcases the history and culture of the Kawaiisu tribe, the Native Americans who inhabited this area for thousands of years before the coming of the white settlers and explorers.

• Was an important meeting place (maybe 3,000 years ago) for Native American tribes of the southwest • Is rich in fossil and calcium/ limestone deposits • Is home to many astronauts, test pilots and aviation and space enthusiasts • Has one of only two state parks dedicated to Native American culture • Was the birthplace of the wind energy industry in the U.S. • Owes its existence to the world famous Tehachapi Loop There are changing artifacts and photos exhibited on a regular basis, and always something different to see. Organizations and tour groups are welcome; please call if you wish a special tour outside regular operating hours. In addition, special tours can be arranged for any age school group. Tehachapi was settled by Euro-Americans in the 1850s – not that long ago historically speaking. The past 150 years of history has brought tremendous change here in this remarkable inland island situated between the Mojave Desert and the San Joaquin Valley “breadbasket of the nation.” We are located at 310 S. Green Street, just a block south of the Hitching Post Theater, and we are open from 12 to 4 p.m., Friday, Saturday and Sunday, on special occasions and by appointment. Visit this showplace for historic downtown Tehachapi, along with the Errea House Museum and the railroad museum on Tehachapi Boulevard at the 1904 Tehachapi Railroad Depot, for a peek into the past. The Heritage League and Museum operate on memberships and donations. For more information on any of our programs, please leave a message at (661) 822-8152.

The Tehachapi Heritage League purchased the Errea House in 1999 and has since worked to raise funds for its renovation. A new roof, repairs to the foundation and porch, air conditioning and heat, rewiring and a newly refurbished kitchen was completed as part of the renovations. The 1920s kitchen has just been refurbished with linoleum, wood wainscoting and reproduction wallpaper. It contains many vintage items from local donors and cabinets from a local farmhouse.

HERITAGE

he charming Errea House Museum, at 311 S. Green Street, is the oldest house in Tehachapi. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it takes its name from the Errea family, whose Basque immigrants and descendents lived in the house for many decades. The Errea House was constructed in the 1870s in the original town site of Williamsburg or Tehichipa, in the Old Town area. It was moved to its present location on log rollers around 1900, after the railroad chose a route through what is the current city of Tehachapi.

The Errea House portrays the rural life found in a small California ranching and agricultural town, circa 1900 to 1930. The Errea Garden is open during all daylight hours and is the only public garden in Tehachapi, featuring colorful views, year round.

Additional improvements have been made recently in the parlour and the bedrooms. The Errea House is currently open during regular museum hours and for special occasions. Tehachapi’s only public garden, the old – fashioned 1900-era Errea Garden is also open to the public during daylight hours. The restored Errea House is a window to the past, depicting the lifestyle of a workingclass family living in Tehachapi during the 1900s to the early 1930s. In addition to the ongoing renovations, which take place as funds become available, the Heritage League also accepts donations of clothing and furnishings to be used to furnish the Errea House as a Historical House Museum.

The Errea House kitchen has been restored to its 1920’s charm.

HERITAGE

uncomfortable and rutty roads now took just days on smooth twin bands of iron, an order of magnitude increase in speed and efficiency. In addition, the railroads fostered numerous innovations that still impact our lives directly. Far from just a collection of artifacts, the Tehachapi Depot Railroad Museum showcases the impact of the railroad on local history and tells the story of those who built and maintained the road. From the hard working Chinese immigrant laborers who helped construct the tunnels and the loop, to the track men, switch men and maintenance workers that kept the line in good order for the dedicated engineers and firemen, the story of the railroad is vast and touches all walks of life.

R

e-built in 1904 by the Southern Pacific Railroad, the Depot is a standard Southern Pacific Railroad design known as Plan No. 23. Only six depots are left and the Tehachapi Depot is the only one still situated at its original building site. It is also one of the few buildings that remained standing after the 1952 Tehachapi earthquake. The Depot is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The Union Pacific Railroad handed keys of the Depot to the City of Tehachapi in 2005. Work began soon thereafter to restore the building to its original condition. On June 13, 2008, with restoration work very nearly complete, tragedy struck and the Depot was completely destroyed by fire.

www.TEHACHAPI.com

In June 2008, the Tehachapi City Council announced their decision to rebuild. The original floor plans were used to ensure that the new Depot matched the original. Construction was completed in November 2009 and includes a new viewing platform on the north side of the building adjacent to the train

tracks. A special feature of the parkstyle landscaping is the Railroad Signal Garden where the Stokoe Railroad Signal Collection is displayed. The signals have been lovingly restored by volunteers of the Friends of the Tehachapi Depot. The Museum houses several large collections of historic railroad artifacts, including antique railroad maintenance equipment and tools, dinnerware, signs and other railroadiana, plus stories and photographs of the men and women who built the railroad and whose lives were affected by it. The Museum also contains a gift shop with souvenirs, books and memorabilia.

Telling The Story The coming of the railroads changed the entire world overnight. At the time that the railroads first came into public use in the early 1800’s, horseback was the fastest means of personal transportation, and the only way to move heavy items was by ship or slow moving ox-cart. A trip that had previously taken months on

In the Depot, you will encounter the romance of the rail as it was during the golden age of travel and see how it has remained a vital part of our modern society as part of a supply chain that extends around the world. See a time line of significant events, stories from railroad employees, historic photos, personal artifacts, engineering

he railroad was built over Tehachapi Pass from Caliente to Mojave in 1876 and is considered an outstanding engineering feat. The track climbs 3,600 feet in 50 track miles from Bakersfield to Tehachapi using “S� curves back and forth up the Tehachapi Creek watershed. At one point just above Keene, the engineer, William Hood, built a large continuous curve which brought the track back over itself and has become known as the Tehachapi Loop. This engineering marvel has become famous among rail fans from all over the world. In 1998, the entire Tehachapi Pass Rail Line was honored by the American Society of Civil Engineers as a National Civil Engineering Historic Landmark because it has been in continuous use for more than 120 years with little or no modification. The best viewing locations are along Woodford-Tehachapi Road either southeast from Keene or northwest of Old Towne Tehachapi.

Murals Depict Tehachapi’s Unique History

T

he Tehachapi Main Street Murals Committee has been hard at work over the last ten years, raising funds and planning a series of historical murals to showcase the rich history of the Tehachapi Valley. In 2011, the tenth mural was completed, to cover a wall of Centennial Plaza on Green Street. It commemorates the historic BeeKay Theatre, a converted 1932 Art Deco movie house that now serves as the home for the Tehachapi Community Theatre (TCT). The murals are meant to beautify the downtown area, showcase the history of the area for local residents, and serve as a historical guide for visitors to Tehachapi.

The Murals Committee made a commitment early on to produce only first quality murals, and Tehachapi now has a wellrespected murals program. The first mural, featuring the world famous Tehachapi Loop, was designed by nationally known trompe l’oeil artist John Pugh, completed with the help of his associate, Mark Spykerbos. The second mural features a street dance held in 1915 when the first electric streetlights were installed in Tehachapi. Phil Slagter, another wellknown mural artist used original photos from 1915 to design and paint the mural. Faces of current local residents, and those from the history of Tehachapi were incorporated into the scene. At the time, Slagter lived nearby, in Canyon Country, but has since moved to Montana.

Tehachapi’s Native American Nuooah or Kawaiisu tribe. It incorporates a village scene from before contact with the white man and portraits around the perimeter show more recent members and elders of the tribe, as well as the type of baskets for which the local Indians were known. At The Shed Restaurant, the T-Hacha-P mural was designed by master artist Art Mortimer, who sketched the mural on the wall to scale and mixed all the paints. Then 15 local artists did the actual painting in one day, starting at 8 am and continuing

ATTRACTIONS until 5 pm. At that time, the scaffolding was whisked away, the area cleaned up, and a dedication was held. Local artist Lyn Bennett designed and painted the Blacksmith Shop mural, taken from an actual photograph of a circa 1900 blacksmith shop, located directly across the street. She was assisted by Brenda Anderline.

In 2008 a mural saluting the 100th anniversary of the township of Monolith and the cement plant that gave it its name was completed. The mural depicts the importance of Monolith to the people of Tehachapi. This mural was made possible by a grant from Lehigh Southwest Heidelberg, current owners and operators of the cement plant. To commemorate the 2009 Centennial of the 1909 incorporation of the town

of Tehachapi, a three-panel mural on Tehachapi Boulevard was painted. A brochure of the murals is available at the Chamber office. Other grants, fundraisers, and donations from the building owners, as well as the community, have provided additional funding. The newest mural was dedicated on July 30, 2011. It is on the south side of the Beekay Theatre, adjacent to Centennial Plaza in Downtown Tehachapi, and appears to be a line of people in line to buy tickets. The mural celebrates the history of the building, which was originally built by Frank Baumgart and Lou Kanstein, owners of the Beekay. Mural artist Colleen Mitchell-Veyna painted the mural with the people in line depicted in clothing typical of the 1940s.

www.TEHACHAPI.com

The Avelino Martinez mural depicts this legendary Tehachapi resident who worked as a groom for the notorious Joaquin Murrieta horse gangs that rounded up stray horses and other livestock to take back to Mexico. Martinez settled in Cummings Valley and lived to be 113 to 115 years old, according to various accounts. It was painted by Patti Doolittle.

A mural commemorating the first Air Mail flight from Tehachapi to Bakersfield on May 19, 1938 was painted by Tehachapi artist Mark Pestana at the Green Street site of the Tehachapi Post Office, circa1953 to 1962. It incorporates a cast relief of a proud American eagle, part of the faรงade, when built in 1953.

n 1981, wind was discovered and the Tehachapi-Mojave Wind Resource Area was born. Local Wind Farms developed and pioneered the technology for economically efficient wind energy generation. From these early beginnings, Kern County will soon again, become the leader in wind energy development and generation. After 20 years of planning, Southern California Edison’s Tehachapi Renewable Transmission Project is nearing its final phase of construction. With 4600 megawatts of capacity, this

line is promoting a green revolution for Kern County. Kern County policymakers have set a goal to provide 10,000 megawatts or 10 GW of renewable energy power by 2015. This will create an estimated 8,000 construction jobs, 1,500 operational jobs and up to 25 billion dollars of investment in Kern County’s future.

It’s unique East-West position across the base of the Coast Range and Sierra Nevada’s makes the Tehachapi Mountain Pass a funnel for the prevailing winds of California’s San Joaquin Valley. The 4,000 foot rise in elevation and thermal conditions of the Mojave Desert further intensify the areas world famous wind resource. Its 3,624 turbines have an installed capacity of 1,583 megawatts of electricity. The projected tax revenues by 2030 will exceed $45 million annually. Tehachapi’s wind is inexhaustible, free and clean. Today, approximately, 500 people are directly employed by the wind industry. Another 1,500-2,200 are indirect or induced employment. Because of their modularity, turbines can be built and installed quickly and inexpensively as the requirements grow. Grazing, farming, and recreational land use co-exists on wind farmland. The Tehachapi-Mojave Wind Resource Area has grown rapidly since its first turbine began producing in the early 80’s. An industry that began by installing 65kw turbines is now regularly installing turbines in excess of 3000kw.
