Concrete to Run to Door of Ramona's Home.

Ramona's home, not the phoney (sic) variety which is claimed by San Diego and other localities for tourist consumption, but the real home of Ramona, on the Camulos ranch, will soon see a fine concrete automobile road leading to this place where Helen Hunt Jackson conceived one of America's best loved novels, in the shadows of the very trees where her heroine lived and loved and dreamed.

The county yesterday decided to pay $4,200 for a right of way thru the Camulos ranch for the construction of the concrete road system in the county. The payment was ordered to the Del Valle company.

And thus it will be that automobilists by the thousands will yearly rumble up to old Camulos, where rests one of the shrines of California romance and where California's most famed story was cradled. For Camulos, unlike many of the other historic spots of California, still retains its pristine simplicity and loveliness, as though preserving to the spirit of Ramona all the wild beauty which she knew in life. — Ventura Post.
