The origin of Ladera Ranch

The origin of Ladera Ranch is connected historically to the story of Rancho Mission Viejo. This story began 120 years ago when partners Richard O'Neill, Sr. and James Flood bought Rancho Santa Margarita in northern San Diego County (now Camp Pendleton) and its adjoining Rancho Mission Viejo and Rancho Trabuco in southern Orange County. Collectively spanning more than 200,000 acres and stretching from Aliso Creek (near El Toro Road) south to Oceanside, the combined properties were acclaimed by many as “the greatest of all California ‘ranchos.’”

Over the past four decades the descendants of the founding families have shouldered the family's responsibilities of land stewardship. Choosing not to break up the ranch and not to sell all the property to the highest bidders, they helped the region manage its growth through visionary community planning and development, which has underwritten the family's preservation of nearly 20,000 acres of permanent open space. They established Southern California's first private land conservancy and one of the nation's most successful wetlands restoration programs.
