George A. Cowles - Legacy


Cowles town officially became Santee in 1893 named for Jennie Cowles' second husband, Milton Santee, who was a real estate developer. The name of Cowles School also changed to Santee. Cowles Spring eventually lost its name Cowles and became Dog Spring. Cowles Mountain nearly lost its name as well, becoming known as Black Mountain (even though there already was one in the county), and "S" Mountain (because of the large white "S" painted on by San Diego State students). The historically significant name of Cowles Mountain was actively preserved by the Mission Trails Regional Park.
