    Community character and culture

    , Valley Center, CA, Local Realtors
    Valley Center

    Valley Center is a community in a small rural town. The community is largely based on agriculture and farming with a few gated communities. Historically, the growth of Valley Center has been slowed by lower densities including a minimum of 2 acres (8,100 m2) being required for most parcels.

    Some changes in the community can be attributed to the expansion of Indian casinos in the area. There are currently two major casinos in the vicinity of Valley Center - Harrah's Rincon and Valley View; both were opened in 2001-02, bringing traffic and jobs to what used to be an out-of-the-way agricultural town. High traffic necessitated highway improvements, partially paid by casino contributions.

    Despite these changes, there are still no chain department stores in the community; residents do their shopping in smaller "mom and pop" stores, and drive either to Escondido or to Temecula.

    The town has a museum that was founded in 2003 that includes a stagecoach built in 1848, a stuffed California Grizzly Bear, and memorabilia and photographs from famous people who have lived or spent time in the area such as John Wayne, Fred Astaire, Steve Reeves, Randolph Scott, June Allyson and Dick Powell; around 30,000 people visit the museum each year.[10][11]

    Agriculture

    Traditionally, the town and the surrounding areas have largely been dedicated to agricultural uses. Various commercial crops include oranges, lemons, and avocados. More recently farmers have taken up other crops, including ornamental floral products such as lavender. Additionally, there is a thriving animal farming industry including egg-producing hens and llamas.

    History

    Valley Center was the site of the capture of the largest California Grizzly Bear in history. In 1866, a grizzly weighing 2,200 pounds was killed at the Lovette house, which has now been demolished.[12] Although the town had been settled in 1845 and homesteaded in 1862 after President Lincoln signed the Homestead Act, it had no formal name until the famous 1866 bear incident. The notoriety surrounding the event gave Valley Center its original name of Bear Valley. The name was subsequently changed to Valley in 1874, to Valley Centre in 1878 and, finally, to Valley Center in 1887. An exhibit of a smaller California Grizzly bear is on display at the Valley Center History Museum.

    History Museum

    The Valley Center History Museum is located in Valley Center, California on Cole Grade Road in the Valley Center Library complex. The museum displays historical photographs and artifacts from Valley Center and the surrounding area. It is a registered charity and staffed entirely by volunteers

    The museum was founded in 2003 by the Valley Center Historical Society. In 2015, it expanded by 50 percent, adding an extra wing to accommodate a historic stagecoach which was built in 1848 and served as a Civil war ambulance, provided local transportation, and was featured in a number of Western motion pictures. Its other centerpiece exhibit is a taxidermy mount of a now-extinct California Grizzly Bear. Other exhibits include memorabilia and photographs from famous people who have lived or spent time in the area such as John Wayne, Fred Astaire, Steve Reeves, Randolph Scott, June Allyson and Dick Powell.[10][11]

    Memorial Weekend Events

    On Memorial Day weekend, the town celebrates their western heritage and fallen veterans with the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Festival [13] and an annual parade.

    Though the Stampede Rodeo began as a separate event from the parade and festival, in 2015, it combined with the then-called Western Days Festival, becoming the Stampede Rodeo and Festival. The Stampede Rodeo has no affiliation with the parade, though they occur over the same weekend. The Stampede Rodeo and Festival was coordinated by the Valley Center Optimist Club,[14] but recently became sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys association, and all proceeds go back to the youth of the Valley Center community through club donations and scholarships.[15] Valley Center Western Days Parade is coordinated by Western Days, Inc. as of 2017.[16]

    The festival began as the Valley Center County Fair (1950), then became Western Week (1963), Western Days Country Festival (1966), Country Fair (1967), Western Days (1968), and Valley Center Western Days (1980). The Western Days Parade was added in 1970.[13] In 2002, the rodeo began as bulls and barrels, but added more events and became the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo the next year.[17] Since then, the Stampede Rodeo has been a separate entity from the parade and festival, until the festival became part of the Stampede in 2015.

    The parade began in 1970 as the Western Days Parade, but in 2016, it was rebranded "Valley Center Days"[18] to be more inclusive because the word "Western" had negative connotations for some local Native American tribes,[19][20] however the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo and Festival continued separately, as usual.[21] In 2017, Valley Center Western Days, Inc. produced the parade,[22] and the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo celebrated its 16th year.[23][24] In 2018, the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo became sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, becoming the first professional, non-profit rodeo in Valley Center.[25] The Valley Center Stampede Rodeo supports several youth associations within the community, including the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Queens.[26] In 2018, Miss Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Madison Wagner represented Valley Center at the state-level pageant for the first time, winning the crown on her first attempt and becoming the first Valley Center Stampede Rodeo Queen to be crowned Miss Rodeo California.[27][28]
