El Fornio was proud to be featured in the August, 1976, issue of National Geographic. Described as a place "Where the Future is The Past," El Fornio's Chamber of Commerce is trying hard to make El Fornio a place where the past is the future.
 
Barclay Combs, the "Ansel Adams of El Fornio, California,"™ took this photo. Of all the photos he took of the region—most were black and white—Mr. Combs will always be remembered for this one. Visit the Society's recently acquired collection of Barclay Combs' photographs.
