SLO County Deck Builders, your #1 Deck Contractor, is ready to help you enjoy your views of the Santa Margarita Valley. Having year-round running streams, oak trees with copious acorns, this area was a popular meeting spot for the southern Salinan tribe and the northern Chumash tribe in a previous time. The Santa Margarita de Cortona Asistencia, a sub-mission of the Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa, was founded circa 1775.

The town of Santa Margarita has seen its share of population growth and downturns throughout the years. There was a boom time in the late 1880’s when the railroad terminated in the town, but as construction grew down the Cuesta Grade, the town became a freight transfer hub for stage transportation. However, once the roads were improved between San Luis Obispo and Santa Margarita, the town became quiet.

Margarita Town did see a resurgence during the roaring 1920’s as El Camino Real was a primary road for exploring California. Santa Margarita offered many amenities including a motor inn, gas stations, motor garages, pool halls and taverns, restaurants, and even a baseball team.

However, The Great Depression of 1929 hit the town and its surrounding areas very hard. Taking land from local farmers, The War Department built the reservoir on the Salinas River creating Santa Margarita Lake in order to provide water for Camp San Luis. Work was yet to be completed when the war ended, and Santa Margarita Lake is now a popular County Recreation Area.

Ever since the Highway 101 bypass was completed in 1956, Santa Margarita has become a quiet place for artists and families to call home.
