The above photo is of Santee's Edgemoor Polo Barn, built in about 1913. The barn may soon become the last reminder of the Edgemoor Farm. At one time the area was a dairy farm and the barn was home to polo ponies. In the 1920's the county bought the farm and used it for a hospital and nursing facility.
A new facility opened this year and the old buildings are slated to be torn down, except for the barn which is listed as on the National Register of Historical Places. I could see this place being made into a nice shopping/historical area like Bazaar del Mundo/Old Town or something like Old Poway Park. Too bad for us if it is not saved.
