“In 1882, a New Yorker named Theodore Loop came to Southern California to build a railroad connecting Los Angeles and San Diego. The original train tracks were laid down in the middle of Township 14, known today as Del Mar. Mr. Loop liked the area so much he told people that he had ‘found the most attractive place on the entire coast.’ In the same year, Loop met a very successful rancher from New Mexico, Mr. Jacob Shell Taylor. Taylor and Loop were both captivated by the beauty of the area and recognized a development opportunity. In the summer of 1885, Taylor purchased 338.11 acres and began building the new resort town.”
