Commonly referred to as “The Ranch,” Rancho Santa Fe has a rich history and was established in 1928. Another byname for this area is the Covenant, which refers to the Protective Covenant that was created by the Rancho Santa Fe Association. This Protective Covenant made an agreement to maintain the character of the community and its landscape, and to uphold the quality of any future architecture. This special agreement eventually came to be known as, simply, the Covenant, and it now refers not only to the principal governing document, but also to the community as a whole.
