                        Placer Title Company

    Contra Costa County has been transformed from farms to freeways in the past fifty
    years, and the county is still growing. Since World War II, the new homes, comfortable
    climate, and pastoral beauty of Contra Costa have made it a popular place to raise a
    family. Today the 733 square mile county boasts nineteen cities and twenty-three
    unincorporated communities, each with its own character, charm and history.

    The county now offers its residents the best of both city and country life. There are still
    wide vistas, nature trails and open spaces, but business centers, excellent restaurants and
    entertainment are widely available without leaving the county.

    Mt. Diablo, standing 3,849 feet, dominates views from every corner of the county. On a
    clear day, it is said, fifty-eight counties are visible from the summit. Much of Mt. Diablo
    has been preserved for the public as state and regional parks.

    The Caldecott Tunnels pierce the Coast Range, which tends to keep bay fog and big city
    crime and bustle out of the Diablo and San Ramon Valleys. The gradually flattening
    terrain of Contra Costa meets the delta of the Sacramento and San Joaquin River to the

    Once the home of the Ohlone, Karquin, Miwok, and other Native American Indian tribes,
    the area was colonized by the Spanish in the early 1800’s. street names are a reminder of
    California’s Spanish-Mexican past, and of founding farm families, such as Hartz, Ygnacio
    and Pacheco.

    Those streets and freeways now lead to regional recreation destinations such as Water
    World USA, Six Flags Marine World, San Francisco, the Napa, Sonoma and Livermore
    Wine Countries, the picturesque Pacific Coast, the Gold Country and the Monterey Bay.

    Transportation and entertainment have mushroomed to meet the demands of Contra Costa’s
    growing population. Demographers predict the county will have one-million residents by
    2010. The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) train links Contra Costa communities with San
    Francisco and points between. County Connection bus service covers the county, and the
    network of pedestrian and bike trails is growing.

    Walnut Creek’s Dean Lesher Center for the Arts, the Sleep Train Pavilion in Concord, and a
    new waterfront amphitheatre in Martinez are popular cultural venues. Community theatre
    groups such as Diablo Light Opera, Onstage Theatre, Playhouse West, Contra Costa
    Musical Theatre, Center Repertory Theater, the Town Hall Theatre Company, and the
    Willows Theatre Company, and the Willows Theatre offer a continuing array of live theater

    Recreational opportunities, in Contra Costa are abundant, hiking and horseback trails
    wind throughout the area. Fishing, boating, hunting water skiing, swimming, as well as
    basketball, baseball, bocce ball, tennis, racquetball and golf can be found within a
    short drive.

    A number of moderate to expensive housing developments have evolved in the
    communities of Danville and neighboring San Ramon. Alamo and Diablo feature
    higher priced homes in a more rural setting. Blackhawk is a development of custom
    homes in a country club setting which features golf, tennis, swimming and shopping.

                                     A Community Begins

    Today San Ramon is a dynamic young city, one of California’s outstanding urban
    villages. It has a variety of homes, parks and stores and a major employment center,
    all in a setting of remarkable beauty.

    It was once home to the Seunen Indians, Ohlone/Costanoans whol lived adjacent to the
    valley creeks. After 1797 it was Mission San Jose grazing land; later it included Jose
    Maria Amador’s 16,000 plus acres Rancho San Ramon.

    San Ramon Creek was named after an Indian Vaquero, Ramon, who tended mission
    sheep here. In an 1855 land title case, Don Amador explained that “San” was added to
    the creek’s name to conform with Spanish custom.

    American settlers first came to San Ramon in 1850 when Leo and Mary Jane Norris
    purchased 4,450 acres of land from Amador. Other early landowners were William
    Lynch, James Dougherty, and Major Samuel Russell. In 1852 Joel and Minerva Harlan
    bought land from Norris and built a house on what became the Alameda-Contra Costa
    County line in 1853.

                                        The Glass House

 Many of San Ramon’s founding families are remembered today because their names grace
 various canyons, hills and streets. Some of these pioneers were Norris, Lynch, Harlan,
 McCamley, Crow, Bollinger, Meese, Glass and Wiedemann. Both the Harlan home (1858) at
 19251 San Ramon Valley Blvd. and the Wiedemann home (1865) near Norris Canyon still
 stand in their original locations. The Glass House (1877) has been moved to Forest Home

                                      A Village Develops

 San Ramon had several names in the nineteenth century. It was called Brevensville (for
 Blacksmith Eli Breven), Lynchville (for William Lunch) and Limerick (for the many Irish
 Settlers). The first village developed at the intersection of today’s Deerfield Road and San
 Ramon Valley Blvd. In 1873 when a permanent post office was finally established, it was
 called San Ramon.

    During the 1860’s the village became a hub of community activity. In 1864 a stage line
    established by Brown & Co. ran from San Ramon through the valley to Oakland. A
    church was dedicated in 1860, the general store was built in 1863 and students left
    their home-based classrooms to attend the San Ramon Grammar School beginning in
    1867. Saloons, a jail, Chinese wash houses and blacksmith shops lined County Road
    No. 2 (later San Ramon Valley Blvd.).

    With the arrival of the San Ramon Branch Line of the Southern Pacific in 1891, other
    changes took place. The name “ San Ramon” permanently replaced references to
    ”Limerick.” Crops and passengers could travel in and out of the area, no matter what
    the weather. Until 1909 San Ramon was the terminus for the line and boasted a
    two-story depot, the engine house and a turnaround for the locomotive.

    In 1895 attorney Thomas Bishop Acquired 3,000 acres of Norris land (after a divorce
    case in which Bishop’s law firm represented Margaret Norris). The Bishop Ranch
    raised cattle and sheep and was planted with hay, grain, diversified fruit crops and
    walnuts. Bishop’s Shropshire purebred sheep earned numerous awards. The Ranch was
    partially irrigated from an underground aquifer and at one point possessed the world’s
    largest single orchard of Bartlett Pears.

    The San Ramon Community Hall became the community’s center early in 1911,
    drawing farm and ranch families to dances, school programs and plays. It was still
    standing in 1960. Residents belonged to several community groups over the years,
    including the Danville Grange No. 85, Odd Fellows, SRV Farm Bureau Women,
    Rebeccas, Romana Club, and Mother’s Club.

    As with the entire Tri-Valley, agriculture was the basis for San Ramon economy until
    suburban development began. In 1966 the new Interstate 680 freeway was completed
    through San Ramon to Dublin. For years a sign “San Ramon Population 100”
    accurately reflected the number of people in the area, with the whole San Ramon
    Valley having just over 2000 people for many decades.

    The designation “San Ramon Village” first appeared in the 1970 census with a count of
    4,084 people, part of a San Ramon Valley population of 25,899. Developers Ken Volk and
    Bob McClain built the first San Ramon suburban homes close to the county line. A special
    district, the Valley Community Services District (VCSD) provided the water, parks, sewer,
    fire protection and garbage collection for the new homes.

    In 1970 Western Electric purchased 1,733 acres of the Bishop Ranch and proposed a “new
    town” complete with a variety of housing, green belts, stores and light industry, placed in
    the center of San Ramon. Eventually park of the land became new homes and, in 1978, 858
    acres became today’s Bishop Ranch Business Park, a premier modern office development.

    Before San Ramon incorporated, homeowners groups such as the South San Ramon
    Homeowners and the Homeowners Association of Twin Creeks represented residents’
    interests before the county. They joined service clubs and others in providing a local voice
    as developments replaced orchards.

    In 1983 San Ramon voters decided overwhelmingly to incorporate as a separate city and
    took control over development, police, parks and other services. A new library, community
    center, parks and hospital testify to the energy which the new city displayed. No longer a
    quiet outskirt of the Bay Area, San Ramon looks to the future and values its past.

       Alamo, which borders Danville’s north edge, is the second oldest township in
       Contra Costa County. Martinez, the county seat, is the oldest. Named for the
       many popular trees found in the community by Spanish settlers, Alamo had the
       San Ramon Valley’s first post office, in a private home in 1853. For many years
       it served as the only post office between Martinez and Mission San Jose in
       Fremont. Native Americans were the first inhabitants of the area. During
       highway construction in the 1960’s, artifacts from about 6,000 years ago were
       found near Stone Valley Road. Several years later, a Native American burial
       ground that is believed to date from 300 B.C., was discovered at the intersection
       of Stone Valley Road and Danville Boulevard. Several efforts to incorporate
       Alamo have failed over the years.

     The unincorporated community of Blackhawk, noted for its elaborate houses and smattering
     of celebrities, is sequestered behind walls that line the rolling hills east of Danville. The
     first group of Blackhawk homes was built in the early 1980’s on land that used to be known
     as the Blackhawk Ranch. Established in 1917 by San Francisco capitalist Ansel M. Easton,
     the ranch was used first as a summer home and later as a working ranch. The ranch gained a
     worldwide reputation for purebred shorthorn cattle and prize Sire horses. Walnut trees also
     were grown there, and for years the ranch was known as one of Contra Costa County’s most
     productive. The original 1,250 acres ranch changed hands several times, growing to about
     6,500 acres until it was sold in 1973 to the Blackhawk Corporation. During the next few
     years the corporation sold lots to builders and individuals who today live in the exclusive
     9 square mile community. The posh Blackhawk Shopping Plaza contains Blackhawk
     Automotive Museum and the University of California Berkeley, Museum of Art, Science
     and Culture.

   Danville residents like to call their town a special place. With oak trees lining the
   main street, rolling hills in the background and many businesses nestled in small
   wooden structures, the downtown has a quaint feel that the town’s leaders work
   actively to preserve. Danville was named after Daniel Inman, who, with his brother
   Andrew, purchased 400 acres of farmland in 1858. To establish a post office the area
   neede a name, so Danville it became, says historian Virgie V. Jones. Today the town’s
   main street is Hartz Avenue, named after on the area’s first sub-dividers, built around
   Inman’s time the central avenue was Front Street, also known as Waterfront Street for
   its proximity to the San Ramon Creek. Among the first businesses were a hotel,
   blacksmith shop, barber shop and a veterinarian’s office. By the early 1900’s the town
   was growing rapidly with the addition of several banks, a department store, a courtroom,
   telephone office and a high school. The 18 square mile town incorporated in 1982.

     Nestled between Danville and Blackhawk, Diablo Sits at the base of Mount Diablo,
     for which it is named. Diablo was established in the early 1900’s as a summer vacation
     area for San Francisco residents who wanted to escape the fog. It eventually grew into
     a year-round residential community with its own post office. Diablo’s passé is reflected
     in area homes which range from mansions to summer cottages. Residents are adamant
     about maintaining the eclectic feel and closely inspect any proposed development.

                                         San Ramon

   A developer’s decision more than a decade ago to build a business park rather than
   another anonymous housing tract put San Ramon on the map. Alex Mehran foresaw
   the need of many San Francisco companies to shift their back office operations from
   expensive offices downtown to more competitive space in the suburbs. Mehran
   transformed 585 acres of orchards into Bishop Ranch Business Park, which is now
   home to over 250 companies, including regional headquarters for SBC and Chevron.

   The office park changed the character of the city from a bedroom community to a
   major employment center. More than 20,000 workers make their way to Bishop Ranch
   every day. San Ramon didn’t officially become a city until 1983 when voters rebelled
   against Contra Costa County control. Residents felt officials in Martinez, the county
   seat, were quick to approve major housing developments like the 3,100 unit Canyon
   Lakes neighborhood, but were shortchanging essential services like parks and police.
   Not long ago, San Ramon homeowners had to go to Danville or Dublin to find a
   supermarket, and they had only two overworked parks. The city now has more than
   seven shopping centers, twelve parks, a hospital, a library, a community center and a
   senior center.

 In the early 1900’s the lush rolling foothill expanse of Mt. Diablo became known as Blackhawk
 Ranch, where prized thoroughbreds graced the land for decades. Years later, this natural
 splendor inspired a vision of luxury living, and in 1979, a new Blackhawk was born.

 Today, as you enter the peaceful world of Blackhawk Country Club, you will drive past lush
 landscaping and luxurious homes to two magnificent golf courses and clubhouses: the lakeside
 and the falls, surrounded by acres of stunning open space.

 Blackhawk Country Club membership is limited and by invitation only.
