The untold story of the Bolsa Chica Gun Club, one of Southern California's most important power centers.

Before the rise of Huntington Beach, the Bolsa Chica Gun Club stood as a captivating testament to power and ambition. Influential figures like Jared Sidney Torrance and Henry Huntington were members of this exclusive haven where businessmen, politicians, and even stars of early Hollywood gathered to relax and socialize. Once rapid development and the discovery of oil began encroaching on the club lands, it slowly faded into memory, but its influence remains.

Chris Epting is the author of forty-five books and memoirs, including Teddy Roosevelt in California and many others. He is an award-winning travel writer and has written for the Los Angeles Times , Huffington Post , Westways and Travel + Leisure magazine. He served on the Orange County Historic Commission and sits on the Advisory Board of the Bolsa Chica Conservancy. Chris also produces and hosts the popular local TV programs Hidden Huntington Beach and OC History Hunters.
