El Cerrito, California was established in 1906, by refugees from the San Francisco earthquake. The year 1917 brought the incorporation of El Cerrito, as a village that had a population of some 1,500 people. According to the census that was taken in 2000, there were 5,971 families, 10,208 households, and 23,171 people residing in El Cerrito.
Around the year 1900, there weren’t many trees and the majority of the of the hills were bare. There were less people in the region than there were cattle. Next to the hillside, there were many chicken farms and dairies. The primary street through the region was San Pablo Avenue that had businesses from the County Line close to Potrero Avenue, known at the time as Stege Junction close to Fairmount Avenue, known at the time as Road 4. The people had to contend with mud in the wintertime and dust in the summertime because none of the roads were paved. It was nearly impossible to get through boots on between, the county line and Fairmount Avenue.
The village began growing following the 1906 fire and earthquake in San Francisco, as the refugees from San Francisco relocated this side of the Bay to reside. In 1857, a man named Wilhelm Rust born in Hanover, Germany and, in 1883 he arrived in California. He rented some land, established a blacksmith shop and his business expanded. Sometime later, he acquired the materials for an built a hardware store. In 1909, the first post office was opened in one corner of his hardware store. Later that same year, Rust was named the first Postmaster.
People began calling the small community Rust until 1917 when the community of some 1,500 residents was officially incorporated as a city. The residents of the small community didn’t like the name of Rust so they renamed the community to El Cerrito, which when translated from Spanish, means Little Hill. Wilhelm Rust is considered to the founder of El Cerrito, and he was well liked by the residents and praised as a trustworthy and honest businessman and a prominent citizen.
The first board of trustees for the City Council included Peter Larsen, George Adams, Phillip Lee, John Sandvick, and George Scott as treasurer. The first elected City Clerk was a woman named Mrs. Grace Castner. The First City Marshal was George Barber. His job also consisted of license and tax collector, electrical and plumbing inspector, building and street inspector. Once El Cerrito was incorporated, the first thing the City Council did was to impose a large license fee for each of the saloons in the community in order to pay the wages of the treasurer, clerk, and marshall, as well as for other needs of the community. Because there were nearly 20 saloons located around the community, there was a considerable revenue was collected for EL Cerrito. However, the majority of these saloons were located on San Pablo Avenue.
There weren’t any police of fire protection for the community of some 1,500 residents in 1917. This was the primary reason for El Cerrito being incorporated, so that it could collect money from taxes in order to provide services that the residents needed. A street paving program was the first priority, which soon followed the incorporation, and then the herding of cattle along San Pablo Avenue was halted. At one time, the farmers would drive great herds of cattle to the slaughter houses which were located down the street. The result was the inevitable dust storm and the people began complaining and demanded it be halted. Located just west of the Santa Fe Railroad tracks, on the southernmost side of Fairmount Avenue, there was a corral where ranchers herded their cattle to be stored or to be shipped by rail to the slaughter house, which was located on Central Avenue.
Beginning with an approximate population of some 1,500 residents in 1917, the region grew rapidly, and, in 1930 reached a population of some 3,852 residents, and by 1940 had again increased in population to some 7,000 residents. During the years of WW II years, the population increased dramatically to some 16,624 residents. The post-war housing boom came next. By 1950 the population increased again to some 18,000 residents from some 7,000 residents. These days, the population of El Cerrito is some 24,000 residents.
The Castro Adobe is currently a portion of the El Cerrito Plaza, which is located about halfway between the current CVS drug store and San Pablo Avenue. This was the first structure built by a native Californian in what is currently known as El Cerrito. As the home to Castro and his family, over the years it has expanded considerably. The Rancho San Pablo had become a popular nightclub by 1928. In addition, between 1932 and 1939 on the location of the former Castro rancho was a racing track for greyhounds, known as the El Cerrito Kennel Club, a drive- inn, known as the El Cerrito Motor Movies, and a trailer campsite for industry workers during WW II. Two years after the adobe was destroyed by fire, in 1958, the El Cerrito Plaza opened.
