The county population grew so quickly that 13 years later the State Legislature expanded the county boundaries and parts of
The boundaries have remained unchanged since 1887.
Between two mountain ranges northeast from
The county has rich valleys where thrifty orchards grow
And every fruit on record in these valleys have a show.
Seed farms large and fertile are famed throughout the west
And the vineyards on the hillsides are considered as the best.
Extensive cattle ranches are found from north to south,
And along side the San Benito from its head down to its mouth;
And all throughout the hills and mountains rich mines are hid away
Waiting for the miners to come and get their pay.
In the county there are places that are famous everywhere
Such as Fremont's Peak for instance, where Old Glory took the air;
And Pinnacles near Bear Valley where Van Couver lost his way
And found the giant boulder where he wanted Monterey.
And farther south the rarest gem that has ever come to light
A gem not found elsewhere on earth, the blue Benitoite.
