The first inhabitants to the area were people of the Kumeyaay tribes. The first Europeans to the area were sailing for the Spanish crown in 1769. The area was controlled by Spain until Mexico won their independence from Spain and the area that would one day be the master-planned community was part of the Rancho San Bernardo land grant in 1842. The Bernardo Winery, one of the oldest operating wineries in California, was founded in 1889. In October of 2007, the area suffered through a wildfire, now known as the Witch Creek Fire. The fire caused paths of destruction through the community destroying several neighborhoods including Westwood, Montelena and Trails.
