THE BOOM OF 1887

 

This boom marked the beginning of California’s second gold rush, the citrus gold rush. Because of the price war between the railroad companies, Santa Fe and Southern Pacific, prices dropped to the unheard of fares. Thousands upon thousands of people took advantage of this fare war in order to satisfy the fever to view California first hand. The landowners saw the opportunity of breaking up their large parcels to more affordable sized lots. The promoters were well schooled in taking advantage of the situation by creating an affect or frenzy through the scheduling of the wave of excursion trains. The Boom was on!
