Welcome to Episode Eight of the Tejon Ranch History Podcast. Earthquake! In 1857, much of the buildings left on Fort Tejon were destroyed by an earthquake (estimated at a whopping 8.0 on the Richter Scale). The tremors were so strong they were felt from as far away as San Diego and even San Francisco. This episode also explores how mail service was eventually set up so mail could be delivered to Tejon (only 25 days from St. Louis!). Listen in to learn more!
