Overview of San Pablo

With a small town atmosphere just minutes away from the cultural hub of the Bay Area, it is no surprise that many Californians are interested in San Pablo apartments for rent. One of the oldest Spanish settlements in northern California, the city has become one of the most thriving business and residential communities in West Contra Costa County. According to information from the U.S. Census Bureau, the city has seen a recent spike in population growth with around 30,000 residents.

Living in San Pablo, CA

The history of San Pablo stretches as far back as the early 1800s when 20,000 acres of Spanish lands were granted to the Castro family. Influential to many Californians, the Castro family produced the first native-born governor of California, Juan Bautista Alvarado. In the mid-19th century, the Gold Rush and the eventual U.S. statehood of the Golden State brought many quick changes to the area. One a stage coach reached the city limits, the Castro family began selling their land to European immigrants who soon became ranchers and farmers, and San Pablo became an ideal agricultural community.

Although the city remained a small community for years, World War II changed the country and San Pablo was no different. After the war, the population saw an exponential growth in residents when many veterans returning from war seized on the GI Bill to build homes near the new Richmond Shipyard. As the years went on, San Pablo began to identify itself as a post-war suburban community with many public works projects and affordable housing.
