1. History of the House - Land and Water Company. Travel between Los Angeles and San Diego by automobile was arduous in the 1920’s. The Twin Inns soon became a favorite stopping place for travelers, enhanced perhaps by Mr. Kentners’s willingness to prepare meals at all hours of the night for “victims” of the automobile technology of the 1920’s.

Wadsworth, a partner in the company, built his house as the mirror image to Schutte's; they were beachfront homes at the time. (The Wadsworth house was torn down in 1950.) But the newly dubbed "Carlsbad" was not immune to the economic and meteorological cycles that are so much a part of California history. The 1890s saw droughts and recession. Many of the Carlsbad Land and Mineral Water Co. principals moved south to San Diego. (Submitted on December 29, 2016, by Barry Swackhamer of San Jose, California.)
