For more than two centuries the peaceful grasslands east of the Gabilans in San Benito and south Santa Clara counties have captivated Californians. East of the Gabilans is a unique history of this special land.
Here is the record of the Spanish and Mexican land grants, the ranchos of pre-American California, the lives of the Spanish and Mexicans, and the advent of the Americans in the 1840s and 1850s: the Castros, the Breens, the towns of San Juan Bautista, Hollister, Gilroy, and Tres Pinos, and Henry Miller, the "Cattle King."
