In 1923, a syndicate of Pasadena men purchased all of the land on the easterly extreme of the peninsula from Edna Ferguson, the widow of Joe Ferguson. The property was then subdivided, a map filed in May 1923, and public improvements installed during the winter of 1923-1924, after which an intense selling campaign began.
