When Lake Elsinore was first spotted by Spanish Franciscan, Juan Santiago, on his eastward expedition from the Mission San Juan Capistrano in 1797, the water level was described as little more than a swamp, stretching a single mile long. However, as a result of the great flood of 1862, the lake had grown exponentially larger, providing enough water for Mexican rancheros, American trappers, the expedition of John C. Fremont, and immigrants from the California Gold Rush, to camp and water their animals as they traveled. Throughout the eighteen and nineteen hundreds lake levels rose and fell according to seasons of drought and heavy rains. For example in 1950 the lake ran completely dry but heavy rains in 1980 caused the lake to flood, destroying surrounding homes. Since then a multimillion-dollar project was put in place to maintain consistent water levels, allowing for the development of residential neighborhoods near the lake. Today Lake Elsinore sits in a basin of the Elsinore Valley and is home to some 55,000 residents.
