Welcome to Julian! A Message from the Board of Directors of the Julian Merchants Association

M

ost people familiar with Julian history know that the discovery of gold in 1869 brought thousands of people from all over the world into the quiet hills in hopes of striking it rich. Miners came from as far away as the Netherlands, England, Ireland, Italy, Germany and France, creating a real melting pot. But not everyone came to Julian in search of gold. James Madison arrived in 1867 from New York in search of suitable land to raise horses. He quickly determined that the climate, soil and elevation would lend itself to apple growing. He’s credited for planting the first apple trees in Julian, brought down from central California in the early 1870s. Chester Gunn was a miner who made his way to Julian in 1870. He worked at the Owens Mine but left and set up a private pony express service, delivering mail between San Diego and Julian. After marrying Banner’s schoolteacher, he became a general farmer and stock raiser. His farm became one of Julian’s earliest apple orchards, and Gunn soon became the largest apple grower in the Julian apple belt. In 1884, Arthur Juch arrived during the second phase of the gold boom after studying mechanical engineering back East. He installed mining equipment, operated the hoist, and even worked as a constable, but farming was in his blood. Juch became Julian’s premier apple grower, even establishing new varieties, and served as Julian’s “apple ambassador” during the early 1900s at many fairs around the country, which brought fame to the region. Today, visitors are equally attracted to Julian for a variety of reasons, just as these three apple pioneers were. And the fall/winter months are a great time to sample our famous apple pie, plan a romantic getaway, hike Stonewall Peak, camp at the lake, browse through our unique shops, or even play in the snow Whatever your reasons for visiting, we hope you enjoy the beautiful, scenic drive up here, stay a while, and come back often to visit us. Sincerely,

Tracy Turner President, Julian Merchants Association

Visit Julian Year-Round

By Ruth Lepper

T

he historic town of Julian is a favorite destination for a daytrip or weekend getaway for many visitors from throughout Southern California and Arizona. Charming bed-and-breakfast inns offer comfortable accommodations in town or within a few miles out of town. Many innkeepers are as famous for their breakfasts as they are for their locations and décor. The town is home to the oldest,

continuously operated hotel in the state, the Julian Gold Rush Hotel. Julian Town Hall is another historic site and often the place to go for craft and art shows. And, of course, the Melodrama every weekend in October is a tradition that has lasted more than 50 years. Restaurants abound, in town and also a few miles away in any direction. Cuisines vary from an English high tea to an Italian piece de resistance, from sandwiches to pizzas, along with a

Time for Apple Days By Tracy Rolling

hen the leaves in Julian start changing from pale green to golden orange, it can only mean one thing — it’s time for Julian Apple Days. Apple Days begins in mid-September and runs through mid-November. Julian residents and business owners recognize more than 10 different varieties of apples produced in the quaint country town. The original Apple Day was organized more than a century ago by local residents who wanted to celebrate the town’s awardwinning apple harvest along with the fall season. Today, the town’s tradition is being carried on by the Julian Merchants Association (JMA), which has organized a variety of activities focused on the apple and the season. JMA president Tracy Turner explains how Apple Days is no longer a one-time event, but rather a twoSee Apple Days Continued on page 44

ood old-fashioned family entertainment fills the bill when the 56th Old Time Melodrama is presented weekends in October by the Julian Triangle Club.

NEW LOCATION!

HOG HEAVEN Leather Goods Gifts • Jewelry Apparel ...WITH THE BIKER IN MIND

2016 Main Street 760-765-2966 Facebook.com/JulianHogHeaven

This year’s comedy play is “‘B’ Mine Forever” or “I Get the Mine and You Get the Shaft,” featuring hapless gold miners Melody Moonstruck, Digger Malone and Prudence Poorhouse. Melody hopes to strike it rich and marry Digger, but evil villain Blackie and his accomplice La Verne Laredo have other ideas. Each performance begins with a rousing sing-along of old favorites. Between acts are “olio” variety performances featuring junior cancan dancers, local talent acts, and the famous Triangle Club Chorus (aka, the Julian Floozies), who almost steal the show with their outrageous costumes and hilarious songs. Audience participation is encouraged, as guests boo the villain, cheer the hero and sigh for the sweet heroine. The show is staged in Julian Town Hall, 2129 Main St. Show times are Friday and Saturday nights at 7:15 p.m.; Saturday afternoons at 1:15 p.m., and two Sundays, Oct. 14 and 21, at 1:15. Seating is first come, first served. n Adult matinee tickets are $8; evening tickets, $10; children, $2 at all performances; and children under 2, free. Tickets available in the Julian Chamber of Commerce office in Town Hall, or send a check to the Julian Triangle Club, P.O. Box 115, Julian, CA 92036-0115, and include the date, performance, number of adults and children, mailing address and phone number. Ticket information is available at 760-765-0526.

Christmas, Country-Style

By Ann Reilly Cole

T

he season begins the Saturday after Thanksgiving with the annual lighting of the living Christmas tree at Pioneer Park, followed by a program of carolers, skits, poetry, musicians and performers and the arrival of the Jolly Old Elf in a fire engine with sirens blaring. For Southern Californians who like to feel a nip in the air as they get into the Christmas spirit, Julian is the place to be. Bedecked in holiday garlands and twinkling lights, the shops along Main Street welcome visitors searching for just the right gift to put under the tree, and a home tour sponsored by the Julian Woman’s Club offers inspiration for holiday decorating.

The revelry continues each Saturday evening until Christmas, as the wandering Julian carolers in Victorianera dress sing traditional Christmas songs along the sidewalks of town while a living Nativity staged at the corner of Main and “B” streets reminds visitors of the humble beginning of the holiday. Julian Town Hall is transformed into 19th century England with the annual production of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol,” full of local color. Later, Town Hall becomes a concert hall for the performance of Handel’s Messiah by the Julian Community Choir. A country Christmas in Julian is just the spot to enjoy time-tested holiday traditions. n

Sweet Treat: Check out the 1928 soda fountain for a nostalgic root beer float or creamy malt, or visit one of several candy stores for fabulous fudge, old-fashioned candies and raw apple cider. Shop ‘Til You Drop: Browse through Julian’s one-of-a-kind boutiques, art galleries and antique shops. Bottoms Up: Visit one of the local wine tasting rooms, boutique wineries or hard cider saloon and pick up a bottle as a memento. Alfresco Dining: Relax fireside while enjoying prime rib, fresh seafood or tender steaks. That’s a Wrap: Cap the evening with a slice of apple pie or a romantic carriage ride through the countryside. Star gaze on a cloudless night as you plan your return to Julian.

It’s Time to Pick Your Favorite

By Ann Reilly Cole

A

nna, Almata, Ambrosia, Bailey, Barry, Baldwin, Cameo, Cortland, Crispin — you could work your way through the alphabet to choose your favorite apple variety. But it’s more fun to work your way through an orchard on a crisp autumn day, picking the red, green or golden fruit from the low-hanging branches of a Julian tree. Whether you want to bake them into a flaky crust, sauce them up, press them into a frothy cider, or bite ‘em right off the tree, October is the month to harvest apples and pears from one of

the several Julian orchards offering the opportunity pick your own. Below is a list of orchards whose seasonal fruits are available this year. It is advisable to check websites or call ahead to confirm that apples are still available. Apples and Art Orchards 1052 Julian Orchards Dr., 760-310-6368 www.applesandartorchards.com The U-Pick experience at this orchard begins with a tour of the orchard, complete with “apple facts,” and ends with a chance to make fresh cider, and there’s a whole lot of fun in-between. Group tours are scheduled by appointment at See Pick Your Favorite Continued on page 40

ulian bed and breakfast establishments reflect the character of the town: friendly, charming, small, artistic, rustic, sometimes luxurious and always excellent service. “Friendly” reflects the ambiance at two Julian B&Bs that received five stars from Trip Advisor. Butterfield Bed & Breakfast, tucked into a tree-shaded

hillside, offers old-fashioned comfort with big comfy furnishings, a patio out back, and delicious meals. Eaglenest Bed & Breakfast, perched on the edge of town and close to everything, is the choice for dog-lovers, with great breakfasts and a swimming pool. Each B&B has a cottage that is also available for rent without breakfast service. See Where to Stay in Julian Continued on page 22

Where to Stay in Julian One of the most historic buildings in Julian, the Julian Gold Rush Hotel, was the place to stay for visitors to the backcountry in the 1890s, when it first opened. Family-operated, it retains the ambiance of the period. Shadow Mountain Ranch Bed & Breakfast, another long-time B&B, offers a peaceful setting along with a fairy-tale ambiance. Here you can sleep with the gnomes or in a treehouse. Artists’ Loft and the Cabin at Strawberry Hill is perched at the top of Pine Hills, where the view stretches all the way to the ocean. This is a perfect place to hole up with a good book and relax. On the east end of town at Wikiup Bed & Breakfast, where the owners love

animals, you can enjoy a private cottage furnished with an in-room spa and wood-burning fireplace. The innkeepers have llamas and will take you on a guided tour of town. There are two larger properties that also qualify as bed and breakfast inns. Julian Lodge, an updated Victorian that’s not too fussy, sits in the heart of town. Perched on a hill above town, Orchard Hill Country Inn, offers sweeping town and mountain views and a gathering room with a huge fireplace. Rooms are in the main lodge and in a collection of luxuriously appointed cottages. The inn serves dinner to guests four times a week. n

Both are owned by Renee Engle of the Main Street Carriage Company, who offers narrated tours of Julian history while clip-clopping along in the cozy cab.

Julian Wine Country Bursting with Bounty and Flavor Galore By Marta Zarrella

ulian is a beautiful, historic mining town in the Cuyamaca Mountains just north of San Diego. Gold was once the reason to come here, and the old Eagle and High Peak Gold Mine is a testament to days gone by. Today, the mountain’s bounty isn’t gold, it’s apples and wine — distinctive, enjoyable award-winning red, white, rosé and apple wine. See Julian wine country Continued on page 36

Julian Wine Country The wine country of Julian is a hidden treasure. The vineyards in and around Julian do not produce enough grapes to sustain the Julian wine industry, so Julian vintners buy grapes from others to produce their delectable creations. Many of the wineries use grapes grown here in San Diego County, so it truly is local wine. What Julian does best is provide a number of wonderful wine tasting venues, from winery-owned tasting rooms serving their own labels, to quaint country inns, gourmet restaurants and tasting rooms serving a number of local wines, microbrews and hard apple cider. At Menghini Winery, Julian’s oldest vineyard and winery, a tasting room with stainless steel and oak barrels provides ambiance while aging wine. Owner and vintner Mike Menghini is

Jeff Cox manages the Orfila tasting room in Julian. He and Lily Herenfield welcome visitors to Julian’s wine country every day. “This is the gateway to Julian wine country,” says Cox. “We’re right on 79 and easily accessible. Lots of people start here.” In the same building, Wynola Farms Marketplace, a sign invites travelers to sample a variety of local wine and cider. Herenfield of Orfila suggests, “While you’re here, you must try Country Cellars. She has fascinating local wines and a pear cider, even habanero wine that is a little bit sweet with a kick at the end.” Tasting rooms are scattered around Julian and the nearby communities of Warner Springs and Wynola. Pick up a San Diego Wine Country map at any location, and prepare yourself for a truly tasty tour while enjoying the Old World charm and beauty of this mountain town. n

good a man, as the good old city knew.” Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, the Fezziwigs and other beloved characters are brought to life with humor and compassion. The story is set in Victorian England, with period costumes, dramatic lighting and exciting special effects. The players, led by John Culver as Mr. Scrooge, transport theatergoers to a time gone by, where the ghosts of Marley, Christmas Past and Christmas Present reveal the bits and pieces of Scrooge’s life that made him into a miserable old man. The most frightful spirit of all, Christmas Yet to Come, reveals the horror that awaits Scrooge if he does not reform his ways. Eight performances will be staged in Julian Town Hall the first two weekends in December. Early reservations are suggested. Call 760-765-3120. n

It was founded after the Civil War when Georgia cousins Drury Bailey and Mike Julian settled in the area. Drue stayed when Mike left for the bigger cities of San Diego and Los Angeles, leaving behind his name. As the story goes, Drue named the town after Mike because the latter

The town earned its reputation more than 100 years ago for the apples grown here and continues today with several restaurants specializing in apple pie. n
