Cholame

(2.8/5 based on 20 reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: sightseeing
Cholame is an unincorporated community in San Luis Obispo County, California, USA. It sits within a mile of the San Andreas Rift Zone fault line at an elevation of above sea level and is located at. Cholame is reached via State Route 41, just southwest of the junction of Route 46. Rainfall data from a nearby ranch shows that the area around Cholame only receives about eight to nine inches (200–230 mm) of rain in a normal year.HistoryCholame was originally a rancheria of the Salinian Indians, but it was re-formed as the 73,000-acre Rancho Cholame by Robert Edgar Jack and his father-in-law, W.W. Hollister.Jack studied at Maine Wesleyan Seminary, and he later was an accountant at a shipping house in New York City. In the Civil War he enlisted in the 56th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment, and he served in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, during the Battle of Gettsyburg and then in New York to quell "anti-Negro riots" there. Near the end of the war he removed to California and became Hollister's accountant and secretary on the latter's San Justo Ranch surrounding the present city of Hollister. When that property was subdivided, the two bought the Cholame land. Jack married Hollister's daughter, Lucy Ellen (Nellie) in 1870 and became the largest wool grower in Central California, later switching to cattle and agriculture. Jack organized the County Bank of San Luis Obispo.
