Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society hosts grandson of Barton Millard

The Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society welcomed back the grandson of Barton Millard, Pete Ragan, at a Coffee on the Patio event held July 23. Ragan discussed life in Rancho Santa Fe and the effect it has had on those who experienced the earlier days in the Ranch. His grandfather was involved as “first” president of the RSF Golf Club, often seen alongside Max Behr as he discussed the design for the course layout.

Barton Millard served four terms as president of the Rancho Santa Fe Association and was also co-writer of the CC&R’s. The La Flecha House, home of the Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society, has on display the personal ledger of Barton Millard which dates back to the 1920s. It covers the two-year period when Millard was building his house as well as 53 years of grove records.
