:: Central Coast : Chapter 2 : Harmony ::

The drive along California’s Highway 1 is a curvy, scenic, and memorable stretch of road that snakes it’s way up and down the California coast line. The fact that this highway covers almost 550 miles, built right after the decade of the automobile circa 1934 and features some of the most beautiful coastline in the country, eventually led to it being designated as the “All-American Road”.

During my drive I discovered some small towns that we’ll take a look at. Starting with the smallest: Harmony, CA

With a population of 18, and nothing more to the “Business District” of town concentrated in a tiny area on one dead end street… life here moves pret-t-t-t-t-t-ty slow.

A dairy community that was formed over a 100 years ago by Swiss immigrants. What eventually led to a family feud and a shooting death, the community called a truce and the town was renamed to Harmony. Blink going too fast on Highway-1 and you just might miss it.

This post office is still operational though…
