Short History of Meadowcreek
Meadowcreek was originally undeveloped marshland between the base of Ring Mountain and the Bay. In the late 19th century, two rail lines passed through. There was a small San Clemente station near the corner of the present intersection of Paradise and Madera del Presidio Drives.
One railroad grade ran along what is now Madera del Presidio Drive, entering a tunnel through the mountain to Tiburon. The remains of this tunnel, now sealed, are now in the open space to the south of the Madera del Presidio homes.
Horse Racing at Meadowcreek
From about 1880 into the 1890s, the land that now comprises Meadowcreek Station was the site of a horse racing track for the San Clemente Ranch owned by S. D. Valentine. Horses and visitors arrived and departed from the San Clemente train station. Horses were housed and bred for racing at the nearby ranch site on the current Casa Buena Drive.
