The Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society has acquired the ledger of Barton Millard, which dates back to the 1920s, and will unveil it at Coffee On The Patio Saturday, Sept. 20, at 10:30 a.m. at La Flecha House. Millard was a founding member of the Rancho Santa Fe Association, co-wrote the initial CC&Bs, and served four terms as its president.
Millard’s grandson, Pete Ragan, will discuss his recollections of his grandfather, who also worked on laying out the Rancho Santa Fe golf course with Olympian Jim Thorpe. The original Barton Millard house, designed by Lilian Rice, was located on 16 acres overlooking the reservoir. The 14’x 10” ledger covers the two-year period when Millard was building his house starting in 1927 as well as 53 years of grove records.
