Established 1908

In 1908 Hardy McConnell and son, Leslie, (A Native Son) left Temescal Canyon, near Corona, enroute to settle in Imperial Valley, driving two teams of horses pulling wagons, hauling farm implements, chickens and leading a cow.
Fourteen days later they arrived in the town of Imperial.
Buying raw desert land, the McConnell Family leveled the sand dunes with teams of horses pulling fresno scrapers. Once sand hills, McConnell Ranch is now a highly productive farm.
McConnell Ranch is still owned, operated and inhabited by the McConnell Family with six generations having lived on the Ranch.
This fence was built out of hay bales grown on McConnell Ranch.
