This is the old road that Highway 67 replaced (Mussy Grade ) has all but vanished under the waters of the San Vicente Reservoir. If not for Ramona Ca. the road would have been completely covered over by the wilderness. Moreno Ave at one time connected to this road at the long gone town of Foster 5 miles north of Downtown Lakeside Ca. Long before cars hit this road it was horse drawn wagons that traveled this road into the high country of Ramona and Julian Santa Isabel and beyond into the desert. Then the railroad came to Foster but still from Foster it was horse drawn wagons. CarS bacame an easier way to travel so the road was modernized with concrete. In the early 40's The City of San Diego took advantage of the deep rock canyons and built a Dam at the gorge just a 100 feet from the town of Foster displacing Cumeeyay Indians from the area as well. Some say the waters flooded over some buildings that remained upstream of the dam but SDCWA will not admit there are building underwater. 2 things for sure will be underwater after the Dam raise project is complete Mussy Grade Road and what remains of a farmers home, a 15 ft tall chimney at the east end of the lake in the Kimbal arm. It is said that Lakeside historian Flossie Beadle lived on Mussy Grade before moving to Lakeside. Interesting that while the dam was being built an opening was left at center of the dam for cars to travel through. Long gone are the old times, sometimes one wishes we could turn back the clock to the good ol days.
