I came across this historical marker during our bike ride at Sea Ranch on Monday.

This site is located in the Del Mar Recreation Center at 40600 Leeward Road, Sea Ranch, California. The Sea Ranch Archives Committee has identified twenty-six historic sites scattered about The Sea Ranch. They have constructed trail markers with information explaining the significance of each place. They were placed as part of The Sea Ranch 50th anniversary being celebrated from Memorial Day 2014 to Memorial Day 2015. The GPS coordinates for this location are 38° 44' 33.9" N 123° 30' 01.2" W.

Prior to the Olson Sheep Ranching Family, this was the site of the Del Mark Lumber Mill Foreman's house, which was subsequently used by business tycoon Walter Frick's family as a summer home. Frick probably built other structures, like barns, garages and a tennis court. The Ohlson family lived in the old house until they built the home that is used today as the Del Mar Center.
