Fallbrook

Visitor Information

A friendly farming town with a close-knit community and rural ambience, Fallbrook came into being when the Vital Reche family settled here in 1869 and named the area after their former homestead in Pennsylvania.

Originally populated by oak trees, the landscape changed as settlers grew olives before switching to avocados and nursery crops, which continue to be the primary agricultural crops today.
