San Jenaro City Tourism Logo San Jenaro has a rich history!

1775

San Jenaro Founded

1912

Movieland Studios opened in Palo Verde.

1933

The Great Earthquake of 33: A catastrophic, localized earthquake that did not follow expected patterns of fault activity. Many key buildings around San Jenaro were devastated seemingly at random. Locations such as the Abbottbluff Hotel were swallowed whole in the catastrophe. The number of dead as a result is hard to pin down thanks to an unusually large number of tourists per capita in San Jenaro at the time.

1947

The Two Years of Hell: An outbreak of a malaria-like illness that struck down only children under the age of 13 in 1947-49.

1955

Movieland Theme Park opened to the public.

1998

Smoking Ban: City Council, after much debate, finally pushes through a city wide smoking ban, limiting outdoor smoking to certain designated smoking areas meant to be phased out almost entirely by 2020.
