    History Project: 
    1941  Brought BIG change to San Miguel and the surrounding area. Thanks to a donation
    from Roy Twisselmann of this Camp Roberts Souvenir Edition of the Paso Robles Press, we have some new and interesting articles about San Miguel's  past and Camp Roberts beginnings.  Here we're sharing an article from that Souvenir Edition that talks about the huge transformation that took place in San Miguel with the beginning of Camp Roberts.  Work began to construct  Camp Roberts on Nov. 13, 1940.  We've heard stories of the rush to find enough housing for all who came to work at Camp Roberts, stories of tent city between the San Miguel Flouring Mill building on N St. and the River, stories of the trailer parks that suddenly appeared, including the "Pear Orchard" between the Mission and the river.  This article gives you information from the writer's perspective on Thursday, March 27, 1941.  The writers are not identified, nor their source of information, but all are very interesting.   This one in particular is about San Miguel after  19 weeks of transformation at Camp Roberts into a base with 741 buildings.   Hope you enjoy reading it. The photos show buildings along Mission Street between approximately 12th St. to 13th St.  Can you pick out the old Bank building  in first photo and in the second photo, the Elkhorn (when the Barber shop was part of it's front right corner) which is next to Eddy's  General Merchandize (the old meat market with Adobe walls that is currently being restored)?
