History does not provide an exact date for when the El Cajon valley became populated with people, but it is thought to have been in the early 1800s. The foothills of the valley made a great natural fence for cattle, and in the early years, this is the reason that people came to El Cajon.
The name El Cajon can be roughly translated to mean, “The Big Box.” This refers to the mountains that surround the entire city of El Cajon. It sits at the bottom of a valley. The population in El Cajon has been steadily increasing over the past few years. In 2010 the population was just under 100,000 people. By 2011 the population had grown to well over 100,000 people. It does not take long for a good city like El Cajon to start getting noticed by people in other parts of the world.
