With a population of about 150,000 citizens, Escondido ranks as the 38th largest city in California. The city's operating budget pegs at $3,000 per head or about 450,000,000, quite a reasonable sum to maintain the corporation.
The Escondido site was inhabited for thousands of years by Indigenous peoples. Sadly, the remains of important archaeological sites have been destroyed by developments and agriculture.
The Spanish controlled the lands from the 1700's to 1840's. After the Mexican-American war concluded, almost all of the Escondido land holdings, primarily large Ranchos, fell into American hands. Infact, in 1846, the Mexican–American War Battle of San Pasqual was fought just southeast of Escondido. The US commander reports a victory, however the stat sheets call bullshit, and list US casualties at 18, and Mexico 0, that is zero. The power of the pen is truly mightier than the sword.
Escondido was the largest Spanish speaking city in California at the time of statehood in 1850. The city benefited from the land boom of the 1880's.
In 1868, a Mr. Witherby sold the Escondido Rancho for a mere $8000 to Edward McGeary and company. It was the wild west you know. The group farmed sheep, horses, and cattle on the rancho and battled neighbors over grazing lands and watering holes. LA businessmen more or less ended the wild west era, when they bought the Rancho in 1886. In a few years, the LA bunch incorporated the city (1888). The money men knew what they were doing, as the railroad came to town, and that always means a boost to the economy and massive real estate gains. Some fifty years later US Route 395 would similarly jumpstart a depression worn economy.
Escondido was primarily an agricultural community into grapes mostly, until a dam was built in 1895. After that, the lands would sustain large crops of citrus, olives, avocados and walnuts. Fast forwarding to recent times, in the name of "progress", Escondido has lost most of its fine agricultural land to generic housing developments.
The local economy is dependent on the private and healthcare sectors. There is only a little private industry that is self sustaining. In the event of government failure, cities like Escondido are doomed, absolutely.
