This Week in Nellie Gail Ranch

From the week ending on November 19, 2021

Nellie Gail Ranch Owners Association Turns 45

On November 10, 1976 the California Secretary of State affixed the Great Seal of the State of California to the Nellie Gail Ranch Owners Association Articles of Incorporation. While that filing by Presley Development Company brought our community into legal existence, the Nellie Gail Ranch heritage goes much farther back. Back to Lewis Moulton who first rented land for his sheep ranch and later purchased it in 1895. Lewis met and courted Nellie Maud Gail for many years before they married in 1908. Just like the Nellie Gail Ranch families of today, Lewis and Nellie Gail Moulton settled here on their Ranch and raised their two daughters Charlotte and Louise. We encourage you to get to know Nellie and Lewis as more than the namesakes of our community. Nellie was an avid painter and a retrospective of her paintings and drawings are currently on exhibit through November 21, 2021 at the Laguna College of Art in Laguna Beach.

You can also visit Aliso Viejo Ranch at 100 Park Avenue which has an original barn and bunkhouse restored to preserve the historical buildings, artifacts and ranching implements from the 1800s. It is a great place for an afternoon visit with your family to see how those who were here before us lived.
