History

Aguaje de Los Temblores (Watering place of the Earthquakes) was a watering place in the foothills of the Temblor Valley along the Arroyo de Los Temblores on the route of El Camino Viejo between Aguaje de Santa Maria and Arroyo Chico Martinez. The Aguaje de Los Temblores were springs created by earthquakes issued from the floor of the canyon where the Temblor Ranch was later located.
