The Huchiun/Chochenyo band of the Ohlone Indians were inhabiting what is currently known as the community of Berkeley, when the first Europeans came to the area. There is evidence of their existence in the region such as a shell mound and pits in rock formations. During the 1950ís, other artifacts were discovered in the downtown region while a commercial building was being remodeled close to the upper course of Strawberry Creek.
In 1776, the De Anza expedition arrived in the area and the first people of European descent arrived with them. At the entrance to the San Francisco Bay, the De Anza Expedition resulted in the establishment of the Spanish Presidio of San Francisco. Among the soldiers at the Presidio was a man named Luis Peralta. He was granted a large amount of land on the eastern shore of the San Francisco Bay in return for his services to the King of Spain. He used the land for the development of a ranch that included part of the land that is currently known as the community of Berkeley.
The name that Luis Peralta gave holding was the Rancho San Antonio. The main purpose of the ranch was to raise cattle for hides and meat. However, farming and hunting were also pursued. Peralta eventually provided part of his ranch to each of his four sons. The son of Peralta named Domingo received most of what is currently known as the community of Berkeley. Another son named Vicente received the small remainder of the land. No artifact of the Vicente or Domingo remains, although their names survive in street names in Berkeley as Peralta, Domingo, and Vicente. However, the legal title to all of the land in the community of Berkeley is still based on the initial Peralta land grant.
After the Mexican War of Independence and the Alta California passed to Mexico from Spanish sovereignty, the Rancho San Antonio continued. However, the land that the Peralta family owned was diminished by dubious legal proceeding and rapidly encroached up by squatters, during the period of the Gold Rush and the onset of US sovereignty following the Mexican/American War. It didnít take long for the lands owned by the brothers Vicente and Domingo to become reduced to reservations nearby their respective ranch homes. Various American claimants received the remainder of the land after it was surveyed and parceled out.
Politically, the region of what is currently known as the community of Berkeley was originally a portion of the vast Contra Costa County. As a division of Contra Costa County, and as a smaller division of Santa Clara County, Alameda County was established in 1853.
During this period, the region known as area of Berkeley was primarily a combination of ranches, farms, and open land, although there was also a small though busy wharf by the bay. It was considered to be part of the northern portion of the Oakland Township, which was a subdivision of Alameda County and not yet officially known as Berkeley.
The private College of California in Oakland was searching for a new location in 1866. This new location was north of Oakland next to the foot hills of the Contra Costa Range. This later became known as Berkeley Hills, which commanded a view of the Pacific Ocean and the Bay Area through the Golden Gate Bridge at an elevation of approximately 500 feet over the bay, next to Strawberry Creek.
A group of men from the College of California were watching as two ships went out to sea through the Golden Gate Bridge in 1866, according to the Centennial Record of the University of California. One of these men was named Frederick Billings, who recommended that the name of the location of the college and the community be in honor of the 18th century Anglo/Irish philosopher named Bishop George Berkeley.
The College Homestead Association for the College of California intended to raise the funding for the new campus by offering adjacent parcels of land for sale. The basis of the modern street plan of Berkeley is based on the street grid and plat that they developed. However, their plans didnít quite make it to fruition, and they started collaborating with the State of California, which resulted in the establishment of the public University of California in 1868.
Additional residences were being built in the area around the new campus as the building started on the new location. A community of many different industries, saloons, and residences started cropping up around the wharf area known as Ocean View. A horse drawn trolley ran between the university campus and Temescal in Oakland next to what is currently known as Telegraph Avenue. In 1872, the first post office was created.
Oakland became the terminus for the Transcontinental Railroad by the 1870ís. The Berkeley Branch Railroad, which was a branch line of the Central Pacific railroad, was laid. During this period, there was a strong prohibition movement in Berkeley. The community passed what was known as the mile limit law in 1876, which forbade the public consumption or sale of alcohol within one mile of the new University of California, The residents of Berkeley voted to make their community a zone that was free of alcohol in 1899. The dangers of alcohol were spoken about vehemently by religious leaders, scholars, and scientists.
The year 1878 brought the incorporation of Berkeley as a town by local farmers, the people around the region of the university campus, and the people of Ocean View. For a while, the region around the university came to be known as East Berkeley and Ocean View came to be known as West Berkeley.
As the result of the influence of the university, the modern age came quickly to Berkeley. By 1888, electric lights were being used. The telephone was already being used. Soon, horse drawn carriages were replaced with streetcars. Berkeley had come of age.
