The History of Sabre Springs

Native Americans once roamed the Sabre Springs area. Archaeological sites show the most recent tribe as the North Diegueño, who are likely related to the Paguay village (which is the origin of Poway).

As time progressed, several ranches emerged in the area, including Rancho de Los Peñasquitos to the west and Rancho San Bernardo to the north.

During the 1800 and 1900s, these areas were operated as cattle ranches. The majority of what is currently Sabre Springs community was owned by the family of famed swimmer Florence Chadwick, who once set the record for crossing the English Channel. Later, the land became property of the Sabre Petroleum Corporation.
