Digging Deeper into Oceanside History

Al Capone was rumored to have made an offer on the Rancho Santa Margarita

In June 2020 the Oceanside Public Library hosted an online presentation about some lesser known historical facts and tidbits about Oceanside, including:  a scandalous reputation of Oceanside’s early boarding house, square dancing at the pier, a rumor that Al Capone was going to purchase the Rancho Santa Margarita, a newly discovered house designed by Architect Irving Gill, and what may be the first business in Oceanside owned by an African American woman.
