Butterfield Community
Live with us today!


We aim to provide affordable housing in Southern California.

Butterfield Community sits along the historic Butterfield Overland Mail Trail.

Today Butterfield Community has come a long way from the stop on the stagecoach route it once was. In the 70’s it transformed into a destination for campers from all over. Now, we aim to provide affordable house to those in need. We hope our residents find a home in Butterfield, a community they can be apart of and grow with. Upcoming improvements include: installing solar panels and more…

It was the first stagecoach route that transported mail to the far west. The route covered 600 miles from St. Louis, Missouri to San Franciso, California. Prior to this, the mail was brought by ship through the Gulf of Mexico, across Panama by truck and again by ship up to California. The route was in operation from 1857-1861. 

It was founded by John W. Butterfield and his associate William G. Fargo (better known as Wells Fargo), among others. Operations began when they won the coveted post office contract in 1857. They successfully delivered mail until the onset of the American Civil War in 1861. unfortunately, Due to debts owed by Butterfield to Fargo, he lost his stake in the company. However, Wells Fargo continued and grew his company to the namesake of banks that it is today. 


Our Mission is to provide housing at a great value.

Butterfield Community is a manufactured housing ranch community. A fun fact, it is home to its own natural aquifer and airstrip! It has three swimming pools and clubhouse, playground, dog park, farm animals and walking trails on the ranch. A general store with all your basic necessities is open everyday. We are handicap accessible. Busses are available into Julian and other surrounding towns (once a week), including a school bus pick-up into Julian.

It is located just 2 hours outside of San Diego, surrounded by the High Desert of Anza Borrego and the Cuyamaca Mountains. The stagecoach route isn't the only history we have! The surrounding towns, landscape and wildlife are all a sight to see. Nowadays, there is plenty to do around Butterfield, including the historic gold rush town of Julian, that boasts western architecture of the 1870’s and famous apple pie.

We strive to provide a quality community at affordable prices to good people. Come see what Butterfield Community has to offer!
