Suisun Valley, California Details
The valley is named after the Suisun Indians, who lived in the area, and the county was named after their chief Francisco Solano. Spain had control of this area, along with all of California, from 1769 to 1821. Then after Mexico won independence in 1821, the whole territory became part of the Mexican empire. The California territory came under the control of the United States after the Mexican-American War of 1846 to 1848, and it became the 31st state on September 9th, 1850. The Gold Rush of 1849 brought thousands of men to the territory. When these men realized the agricultural opportunities in the area, they brought their families. Cattle and wheat were the first things grown in the valley. Then orchards of pears and apricots replaced the wheat. While fruit orchards, wheat, soy beans, corn, sorghum, sunflowers, and olives for olive oil are important agricultural commodities in the area, vineyards have become the major industry since 1982.
