We didn't really plan it that way, but today somehow turned out to be Menifee history day on Menifee 24/7.
This morning, we told readers the story of the Zeiders barn, a landmark building that burned down last week. Also today, we revealed the location of Menifee Maze 7 -- the old Bailey house on Scott Road.
Not only that, but most of you had the correct answer in Menifee 24/7 Reader Poll 9, which actually was a quiz about the origin of Newport Road. Yes, it's named after pioneer farmer William Newport (pictured here at far left, with family members in front of his ranch house).
