Description: Within this valley was laid part of the scene, and here resided a number of the characters portrayed in Helen Hunt Jackson’s historical novel, ‘Ramona,’ which depicted life and presented the status of the Indians on many great ranchos in early California beginning around the 1850s. The story, dramatized by the late Garnet Holme, was first presented on this site April 13, 1923, becoming an annual event.
