It all began with the Mission San Jose in 1797 and the community that sprang up due to the mission work. Named after John C. Fremont, a famous general in California's early days, the city is rich in history. The Spanish founded the mission, and there were no English-speaking people until Jedediah Smith, a renowned explorer, and trapper, appeared in 1827. The community flourished and grew rapidly.

More Growth & The California Gold Rush

Fremont led a military expedition in 1846 through the town to map a trail that covered the area through the Mission Pass to the Pacific coast. When the California Gold Rush hit, the city expanded quite fast. Grape and olive fields and other agricultural ventures brought more economy into the region. The mission was ruined in 1906 by the San Francisco earthquake. The Palmdale Winery, which was the largest in the state at the time, was destroyed in the San Francisco Earthquake.

San Francisco Earthquake of 1906

The earthquake hit on April 18 at 5:12 AM. The shaking was felt all the way from Eureka to the Salinas Valley. The earthquake caused catastrophic fires to break out, and it took several days to put them out. More than 80% of San Francisco was destroyed, and over 3,000 people died. Today, it is still known as one of the most devastating natural disasters in the United States.
