Neighborhood

The City of Benicia is a North Bay Regional City of the San Francisco Bay Area and is located adjacent to the Carquinez Strait, which is part of San Francisco Bay. A waterfront City of 28,000, Benicia is known for its small-town charm, history, and high quality of life. Benicia offers an abundance of leisure and recreational activities.  It served as the capital of California for nearly thirteen months from 1853 to 1854.

Benicia’s climate is temperate and Mediterranean, resulting in dry, warm Summers and moderate Winters. Rainfall averages nineteen inches and falls mostly from December through April. The mean annual temperature is 63 degrees with prevailing winds from west to southeast.

Benicia, the jewel of Solano County, was named in 1847 after Mexican General Mariano Vallejo sold the land from his vast land grant to Robert Semple. General Vallejo asked that they name the city after his wife, Francisca. It is said that first word of the gold discovery found at Sutter's Mill was leaked at a Benicia tavern thus starting the Gold Rush. Benicia became a way station on the way to the goldfields.

Founded in 1849, historic Benicia was the third city to incorporate in the State in 1851. It became the third State capital in 1853. After it was learned that the legislature was unhappy with muddy San Jose, Benicians rushed to erect the red brick capitol building. By making the bricks on site, the construction was finished in just 4 months. Benicia was the State Capital for 13 months before the legislature moved the capital to Sacramento. The building is now a State Park and a historic landmark open for tours.

Benicia was home to a military Arsenal, which supplied weapons to U.S. troops in battles and wars beginning in 1849. The Arsenal housed camels after a failed attempt to incorporate the dromedaries into the army as pack animals. Ulysses S. Grant, William T. Sherman, and other notables passed through the Arsenal. The Benicia Arsenal was decommissioned in 1964, and the area is now home to a thriving industrial park, museum, and art colony.

As a waterfront community, Benicia was a shipbuilding center until just after World War I and home to thriving waterfront industries, such as canneries and tanneries, well into the 20th century.

Benicia has a full-service marina and several municipal parks and is home to the Benicia Capitol State Historic Park and Benicia State Recreation Area, a nearly 500 acre open space area located adjacent to Southampton Bay.  The Parks and Community Services Department offers a variety of recreation activities and programs and manages the rental of all the park facilities.
