West Coast Gazetteer & Directory ~ Vallejo, California

Solano County an incorporated city containing, according to the census of 1880, 6,500 inhabitants, is situated on Vallejo Bay near its junction with the straits of Carquinez, 24 miles north-eastward from San Francisco.

It occupies an advantageous site for commercial purposes, the water m the bay being of sufficient depth to allow vessels of a large class to receive and discharge cargo at its wharves. One of the principal supports of the town is Mare Island Navy Yard, situated one-quarter of a mile distant, where at times a large number of men are employed, many of whom reside in Vallejo.

The town is well laid out, with streets of good width crossing each other at right angles, and contains many substantial brick edifices. Two public schools are maintained, having an attendance of about twelve hundred pupils. There are six churches including two Baptist, and an Episcopal, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Roman Catholic. The societies represented are the Masons, Odd Fellows, Chosen Friends, Good Templars, and Ancient Order United Workmen. The Good Templars' Home, located about two miles from the city, is a well-conducted and praiseworthy institution. Although under the control of the Grand Lodge of the Independent Order of Good Templars, yet its doors are open to homeless orphans of every class.

The city is supplied with gas of good quality, and the Vallejo City Water Co. furnish the inhabitants with an abundant supply of water, brought from Lake Chabot, three and a-half miles distant. Two well-conducted journals, the Solano Times and Vallejo Chronicle, are published daily and weekly. The fire department consists of three engine companies, having one steam and two hand engines, three hose companies, and one hook and ladder company. The country surrounding Vallejo is a good agricultural as well as grazing section, and farming, wine and fruit growing, and dairying are extensively carried on. Communication is maintained with San Francisco by steamer and rail, twice a day and also with Calistoga, Suisun, and other points, by the trains of the California Pacific R. R.
