A designated area of North Beach has been declared a historic district. Ole Hanson, the founder of San Clemente, had a vision of this area being the town center.
OLE HANSEN BEACH CLUB.
Named after Ole Hanson, founder and developer of San Clemente’s “Spanish Village by the Sea”, the 1928 Spanish-Revival-style white stucco building features traditional arches, elaborate hand-painted tiles, ornate stain-glass windows, and original crafted wrought iron grillwork.
The historic Casino San Clemente, a seaside landmark that has hosted celebrations for more than 80 years. Built in 1937 and modeled after the Casino dance hall on Catalina Island, this property is rich in local history.
