Buy Gold and Silver in El Cajon, California

Located in the El Cajon Mountain foothills, El Cajon is a true melting pot. It is among the largest Iraqi and Kaldaye communities in all the US and its diversity also comprises Hispanic, Asian and African-American neighbors. It is often called the Big Box by its locals who refer to it by the English translation of its Spanish name. Its earliest settlers were the Roman Catholic missionaries. They discovered the region when searching for pasture lands in the early 1800s. During the Mexican Era, plots of land in the city were made to people outside of the Catholic Church. The wealthy Spanish dons took the opportunity to buy those plots, jealous of the wealth they perceived the Church to have. The city grew slowly and there were only 25 families living there by the late 1800s. Even though El Cajon formally became a city in 1912, it did not begin to develop until the 1940s. Mail service began in 1942 and the city got its first police car that same year. The city%u2019s now-famous Mother Goose Parade started in 1947. The population of the city boomed from 1400 to over 5000s in just that one decade. Now there are over 100,000 people that reside in El Cajon.
