Coeur de Cuisine 2008 is pleased to honor The Wohlford Family – an Escondido Family with a Heart for the Community
I wonder if you always thought Lake Wohlford was named after the owners of the property on which it was located? Guess what! I learned that is not the case. Lake Wohlford was named after the engineer who laid the plans in the late 1800’s and created an intricate system of flues designed to provide water for agriculture from Lake Henshaw clear to Lake Hodges . That engineer was a fellow named Alvin W. Wohlford and he was the grandfather of Escondido Rotary’s own Burnet (Tig) Wohlford.
