In 1888, McNally purchased over 2200acre of Rancho Los Coyotes, south of Whittier, for $200,000. He developed 700acre into his own home called Windermere Ranch and surrounded it with olive, orange and lemon groves. McNally built a plant to process the olive oil, which was of the best quality, as well as a railroad station on Stage Road. From here his olive oil and fruit were shipped all over the U.S.
