Paso Robles California has long been known as California’s oldest watering place due to its natural sulfur spring. The native Salinan Indians had discovered its healing properties over 1,000 years ago, but it wasn’t until the Mission era in 1797 that the natural sulfur spring had become a centralized meeting place. The original resort was built on what today it known as Spring Street along the El Camino Real. The Franciscan missionaries were the first to establish vineyards that same year and were known as the areas first winemakers based at Mission San Miguel.
