~ A note from Caroline Gage Halovsky ~ "I grew up in this house and barely recognize what has become of it I was part of the ceremony when they put that plack by our front door! My parents, Henry and Margaret Gage started the Trailer Park which they later sold after my grandfather died. They moved to San Juan Capistrano beach along with my grandma. My grandparents would shudder to see what has become of the place!" ~Caroline Gage Halovsky~ http://wikimapia.org/6406009/Casa-de-Rancho-San-Antonio
