Mahlon Vail's Story
He led Ranch's Growth for Most of His Adult Life
By Rebecca Marshall Farnbach
     When we tell someone’s story, we start with mentioning their parents. In Mahlon’s story, his father’s remarkable success story set the scene for Mahlon’s life in and love for Temecula.

     You may know the story of Mahlon’s father Walter who left his home and family in New Jersey on the day he turned twenty-one. With one hundred dollars in his pocket, he left to seek fame and fortune in the West. When Walter didn’t strike it rich in the silver mines of Virginia City, Nevada, his Uncle Nathan in Los Angeles urged him to buy a ranch in Arizona to start a cattle business. .
