It later developed into the center of commercial and social activity in southern Monterey County. Its gradualde mise began with the completion of the Southern Pacific Railroad and the subsequent development of the King City area. The town came under the ownership of William Randolph Hearst in the 1920's. In 1940 Hearst sold the property to the U. S. Army, its current owner.
