Ole Hanson – The founder of San Clemente purchased 2,000 acres in 1925 with the financial help from Hamilton Cotton to develop the land and create the city of San Clemente. Hanson believed that the area’s climate and beautiful beaches would serve as a haven to Californians tired of the big city life. He named the city of San Clemente after San Clemente Island which was named after Saint Clement. Hanson’s vision was to design a city like one of those sleepy Mediterranean towns on the coast in Spain that he had visited. If you look around the neighborhoods in San Clemente you can see that a good majority of the homes carry the Spanish theme but not all do. As you browse through all the imagery on the site, you will start to see a few different types of real estate styles but there is definitely a common Spanish theme through out the neighborhoods and especially with the city buildings.
