Frank Kimball founded National City by purchasing a large tract of land. Once he bought the land he surveyed and laid out the town. From then on the building of the town became his obsession. And by his side was his wife Sarah who he called sister. Their Italianate home still stands and is open for tours.
National City has many structures over 100 years old. One of these is the the Santa Fe Depot built in 1882. It's now a museum.
The stately tudor home of Frank Kimball was built 140 years ago in the year that Kimball and his brothers purchased Rancho De La Nacion. As his fortunes changed later in his life, he lost the home. Saved from the demolishing, it was moved to Heritage Park.
The Kimball family plot overlooks National City. The La Vista Cemetary holds the remains of many of the cities founding fathers. Frank Kimball died in 1913 but left us about eighty years of diary entries.
