Richmond history:

Here is a history page for Richmond.

Though the area was inhabited by native Ohlone Indians for thousands of years previous to the early 1800's, the first explorers came and gradually wiped out the native way of life here. The settlement first occurred on land once part of the holdings of Don Francisco Castro. Though a small town of just 2,150 people when incorporated in 1905, Richmond has grown tremendously over the years. The shipyards grew up in the World War II era causing much growth. AFter the war, the shipyards were closed which caused a sharp drop in population. It was at this time that several programs and projects were put into place to help the area recoup their losses in industry and population. Gradually, the city began to grow again and flourish with over 100,000 residents in 2001.
