Lake Elsinore History

The City of Lake Elsinore was incorporated on April 23 1888 through the efforts of pioneer/financier, Franklin H. Heald. In the early 1880s, Heald's partner, D. M. Graham, wrote this vision for their new city, "We can imagine no more enchanting picture than Elsinore will present when the taste and energy of the settlers shall have made it a valley of fruit and flowers in the midst of which the lake shall lie like a priceless gem in its casket."
