The legislature left in 1853, but the government established a navy yard here which helped the town overcome the loss. The shipyard function for over a hundred years, finally closing in 1996.

The city was named for a Mexican military officer, Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, who helped to settle the area. He wanted the site named Eureka, but the other citizens of the area wanted to name the new city after the general. The man mostly responsible for the founding of the city is John B. Frisbie who married Vallejo's daughter. He was responsible for seeing that the city remained together and helped to establish the city's government.
