1. Hoskings Rental Marker
Inscription. A mining & ranching town, many Julian people could not afford to buy a home on $3.00/10 hr. day. This rental, typical of many here, provided 564 sq. ft., four rooms, kerosene lamps, woodstove, hand dug well and privy for $6.00 to $12.00/ month. It was built with salvaged lumber from Cuyamaca City, the abandoned town at the depleted Stonewall gold mine. Landlord George Hoskings, orphaned child of early Julian innkeepers, parlayed an inheritance from bachelor foster father, Thomas Daily, into vast land holdings including 56 town lots.
 
Erected by Julian Historical Society.
