Richmond, California is situated straight across from the San Francisco Bay some 16 miles northeast of San Francisco. Richmond is also located on a peninsula that separates San Pablo Bay on the north and the San Francisco Bay to the south. Richmond has some 32 total miles of shoreline. The total area of Richmond is some 56.0 square miles, of which 22.3 square miles are water area, and some 33.7 square miles are land area. Richmond is located close to major new growth regions and major metropolitan communities.
San Francisco is located an hour’s drive to the south of San Jose, an estimated 90 minutes from the State capital of Sacramento, and some 20 minutes from Oakland. Straight across the San Rafael-Richmond Bridge Central Marin County is located some 15 minutes from Richmond.
The population of Richmond, within a 30-mile range is nearly four million people, and within a 70-mile range is almost some eight million people. Richmond is comprised of five communities, which are Pinole, El Cerrito, San Pablo, Richmond, and Hercules.
Approximately some 5,000 years ago the Ohlone Indians arrived in this area and were the earliest inhabitants of Richmond, California. Separate and distinct groups lived a peaceful and stable existence, with a culture that was based on rich artistic creativity, spiritualism, and strong community ties. The Ohlone Indians were hunters and gatherers that constructed extensive shell mounds next to the Bay. Amidst the arrival of white pioneers, the way of life of the Ohlone Indians eventually came to an end and was destroyed.
The Spanish explorers the Reverend Juan Crespi and Pedro Fages were the first white pioneers to visit future location of Richmond. In 1772, they ran through the East Bay. In 1821, once Mexico had won its independence from Spain, large plots of property in California were granted to military loyalists and heroes. Don Francisco Castro was granted some 17,000 acres of property in Contra Costa in 1823, which came to be known as the Rancho San Pablo. The community of Richmond was developed on a part of Castro's land grant approximately some 70 years after his death.
A man named Augustin Macdonald arrived in Point Richmond and in 1895 and decided to establish a transcontinental ferry service and railroad terminal in order to present a direct route between San Francisco and Richmond. Mr. Macdonald delivered this concept to the Santa Fe Railroad and the railroad developed its western terminus in Point Richmond in 1899. The Standard Oil Company established its refinery in 1901, and Santa Fe relocated its stores to Richmond.
Already being an industrial community with a population of some 2,150 people the year 1905 brought the incorporation of Richmond as a city. In 1909, the city charter was adopted, and the population had increased to some 7,500 people by 1910. It wasn’t long before some substantial industries located to Richmond; the Stauffer Chemical Company, the Standard Sanitary Company, American Radiator, the Pullman Palace Shops, and Winehaven, as well as many others that weren’t as well known. As Rancho San Pablo’s huge grain fields were divided into uniform city tracts of land as locations around Richmond started emerging around these industries.
Between the 1920’s and the 1930’s, Richmond increased in size. The downtown area became the retail and business center. During this time period, the establishment of shipping port terminals started. Construction of the terminal and harbor as well as major dredging was well underway by 1907. This work had been authorized by bond issues in 1920 and 1912. During the 1920’s, as part of the harbor dredging project, tideland filling made possible the opening of the Perelli and Felice Cannery as well as the Ford Motor Assembly Plant in 1931. Winehaven was forced closed as the result of the prohibition era. In the meantime, the population of Richmond had increased to 23,600 people by 1940 from 2,150 people in 1905.
By far, the next stage in the history of Richmond was the most earth-shaking and the most dramatic. WW II started and one of the largest wartime shipbuilding operations on the West coast began in the Kaiser Richmond Shipyards on the South Shoreline of Richmond in 1941. The result was a boomtime environment, a large-scale in-migration of workers, and explosive growth, all of which had profound long-term effects on Richmond. A considerable amount of the empty industrial property in the area of the South Shoreline Harbor was covered by the shipyards. This required massive extra tideland filling.
The population of Richmond increased significantly to more than 93,700 people in 1943 from some 23,600 people in 1940. This was the result of many thousands of new Black and White residents migrated from the economically depressed Southwest and South to work in the shipyards. Much of this new population was accommodated by in temporary housing. Apartment buildings, demountable homes, and dormitories were all constructed. There were over some 60,000 people living public housing. There are still many temporary housing units that remain open.
