An official California Historical Landmark, the entire township of Julian is a Designated Historical District. This historic mining town, with a population hovering around 1,000, is proud of its old frontier town roots and the extensive apple orchards that make it well known for apple pie. Tucked among pine and oak forests as well as the Cuyamaca Mountains and southern slope of Volcan Mountains, the area is unique for its rainier climate and colder winters compared to the rest of Southern California. The median household income is close to $70,000.
