Vallejo, CA

Vallejo, Ca., Solano Co. Capital of the state of California..... This place is beautifully situated on the sides of lofty hills, which rise with a gradual undulation from the waters of the Straits of Napa, just at their entrance into San Pablo Bay, about 30 miles E. of N. from San Francisco, 8 N. of W. from Benicia, 100 S. W. from Sacramento, and about the same N. W. from Stockton. It can be approached by the largest sea vessels, and through the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers easily communicates with the whole mining district. In its neighborhood, on the Napa and Sonoma, is one of the best farming districts in the state. (Gazetteer of the United States of America, 1854)
