1938-05-09: Julia Bolado Davis donated the 54 Acres of Bolado Park to California’s 33rd Agricultural District

1938: Julia Bolado Davis donated the 54 Acres of Bolado Park to California’s 33rd Agricultural District.

“Bolado Park Donated to County Residents” – Mrs. Julia Bolado Davis Turns Over 54-Acre County Park to 33rd District Farm Association. All Buildings are Included in Gift to People. Donation Made as Memorial to Late Joaquin Bolado.

“Through the generosity and public spirit of Mrs. Julia Bolado Davis and her family, Bolado Park is today the property of the people of San Benito County.”

– Free Lance, Hollister, California – Tuesday, May 10, 1938.

“In 1922, a group of residents asked if they could use part of the land for the county fair. She agreed. Near the end of the decade, representatives of the newly formed San Benito County Saddle Horse Show and Rodeo asked if they might stage their show there. She assented. For many years, she was in the stands to see feats of horsemanship and perhaps remembered the little girl who had not been permitted to ride. When she donated the land to the state as a park [in 1938], she stipulated that it be named for her father, who had come to California nearly a century before.”

-The Pinnacle, June 25, 1992.

“Some time ago she and her sons deeded 53 acres of the Santa Anita Ranch to the 33rd Agricultural District Association to be used for public recreation.It is a beautiful piece of land dotted with superb oak trees, edged by the San Benito River, and known as Bolado Park in honor of her father. It is the site of the annual Saddle Horse Association Horse Show and Rodeo and the county fair. It has a large swimming pool and golf course and the extensive picnic area with barbeque facilities annually attracts thousands of people from a wide area.”

1902-05-18: Juan Indart (Yndart) died at 76

ANOTHER PIONEER GONE — Last Sunday evening, May 18, 1902, news was received from San Jose conveying the sad intelligence of the death of Juan INDART. Deceased had been in ill health for some months past and as his condition did not seem to improve at his home in Santa Anita, it was decided to remove him to San Jose, where the advantage of the best medical aid could be obtained. He was taken to the home of his daughter, Mrs. J.B. GARAT, where he received all the attention that loving hands could give, but which proved of no avail.

At the time of his death, Mr. INDART had reached the ripe old age of 76 years. He was a native of France and had come to California via South America in 1851. On his arrival here he engaged in mining in Calaveras county with varied success. He subsequently turned his attention to the live stock business, and with 2 partners, John ETCHEVERRY, now deceased, and J. YREBERRY, they did a profitable business in the several mining camps of the State. The firm purchased cattle in the southern part of the State and drove them to the mines where they were sold for beef at a large profit. For several years the firm conducted a large ranch in the Kings River valley, and in 1873 transferred their business to Tres Pinos. The firm continued in existence till 1882 when by mutual consent it dissolved and the property interests were equally divided. Mr. INDART’s portion being 3600 acres of the Santa Anita rancho, choice farming and grazing land. Mr. INDART was married in 1863 in San Francisco to Miss Mary ERRICA, also a native of France, and to them were born 6 children, who, with their mother, are left to mourn the loss of a dear and faithful husband and father. The children are Mrs. J.B. GARAT, of San Jose; Miss Domie and John INDART, of Santa Anita, and Peter and John Peter INDART, of Reno, Nevada. The funeral will take place today from the Catholic Church, where services will be held at 11 o’clock.


In the May 30 issue:

The petition of Maria YNDART for the probate of the will of Juan YNDART [aka INDART], deceased, has been filed in the Clerk’s office. The real property consists of 1761 acres of the Santa Ana rancho adjoining the BOLADO estate, valued at $16,000; also 1769 acres of same rancho adjoining the town of Tres Pinos valued at $20,000… , all in San Benito county.
