Other Information about Fallbrook and the Surrounding Area
- The North County Times began putting the paper and their archives online in late 1999, and added a search capability in mid-2000. By far, this is now the premier site for Fallbrook and North County information due to this archive. However, note that not every published article makes it online - about 5% of the articles I look for aren't there.
- The Village News website has undergone a number of changes over the years. In the latest incarnation, online as of December 2004, they have the current issue of the paper online, as well as searchable stories archived back to February 2004. If the site becomes stable, and they continue to add to the archive with time, this will eventually become the premier site for Fallbrook information.
- The Village News now has a separate website, Fallbrook.org: The Insider's Guide to the Friendly Village, which contains a good collection of basic information about Fallbrook. It includes good information about Fallbrook history, brief information about the preserves, a list of churches and schools, art and artists, a business directory (yellow pages), and a list of events.
- Gaylord Moxon established the first Fallbrook website, The Fallbrook Homepage, but it was taken offline after his death. The 1999 - 2004 pages can still be accessed by using the Internet Archive, and looking up www.moxon.org/fallbrook/fallhtml.htm. His site contained basic information about the community of Fallbrook, its churches, schools, places to eat and stay, golf courses, calendar of events, etc., some great maps, a list of local internet service providers and a lot of beautiful pictures.

It also has a great automatic search for articles mentioning Fallbrook that they have published.
- The Union-Tribune's Fallbrook and Bonsall sites. It contains only a thumbnail sketch of Fallbrook and Bonsall, with some basic demographic information. The Union-Tribune does a great job providing median home resale prices for every month in the past year, including the price 1 year earlier for each month. The best part of their main web site is the archives of 3.5 years of the paper, which can be retrieved for free after free registration, and used to search for published articles on Fallbrook and the surrounding area.
