George washington Tull Carter, aged fifteen, came to California with his widowed mother in 1850. In 1865, he purchased five acres near the mouth of San Gregorio Creek on which to build a small hotel. The hotel became the nucleus of a village stretching along Stage Road.
John R. Evans bought San Gregorio House in 1875 and expanded it to its present size.
