 Vallejo Solano County California

Vallejo, Solano County, PO 20 miles south west of Fairfield, at the terminus of the California Pacific and Napa Valley Railroad, fronting one of the best harbors on San Francisco Bay and waters, is a place of rising importance.

The town was laid out in 1851, when the proprietor of the soil, General M. G. Vallejo, proposed a munificent donation of land and money to the State, on condition that the capital should be located on the site. The capital was removed thither, only, however, to remain a short time, when it found another resting place. Half a mile distant, across the harbor, is Mare Island, where is established the U. S. Navy Yard, and the Naval Depot of the Pacific. A large number of men are usually employed at the yard, and the trade therewith constitutes an important resource of the place.

Since the construction of the California Pacific Railroad and its branches, Vallejo has become the shipping point of most of the grain produced west of the Sacramento River, and some from the San Joaquin Valley. Large warehouses and wharves have been constructed, at which the largest sea-going vessels lie, and the facilities for loading are very good.

Among its public institutions is an Orphan Asylum established by the Order of Good Templars, and is a worthy monument of benevolence and enterprise.

Two newspapers are published: The Chronicle daily and weekly, and the Independent dally.

Officers: William Aspenall (president), Henry Connolly, J. E. Williston, E. H. Sawyer, C. B. Denio, E. T. Starr, D. W. Harrier, Trustees; J. E. Abbott, Clerk and Attorney; S. J. Wright, Marshal and Tax Collector; J. R. English, Treasurer; William Tormey, Assessor; J. E. Williston, Auditor.
