Moraga Homes For Sale
Moraga is a small town of just a little over 16,000 residents located south of Orinda, and southwest of Lafayette. Its roots lie in early California Spanish rancho history. Originally a site of cattle raising, farming and agricultural activities, it began to slowly emerge in the late 1920's and 1930's when St. Mary's College established itself in the valley, and homes came thereafter.
