Serving All of Lebec
Lebec is a mountain community located along the Tejon Pass, which runs through the San Emigdio Mountains. The community adopted its name to honor a famous trapper who lost his tussle with a grizzly bear in the mid-1800s. The relatively rural area features more than 1,500 people spread across 500 individual households. With more than 15 square miles of space across the entire neighborhood, population density remains at a scant 96 people per square mile. The houses feature a colonial vibe, though each dwelling offers unique features that make them stand out from the rest.
