In 1850 military officer Mariano Guadeloupe Vallejo offered land for the new state capital of California. Although his offer was accepted and the new town of Vallejo was laid out, the legislature met there for only seven days in January 1852 and for a month in 1853.

The city also developed flour-milling and meatpacking industries. It is now a commuter and transportation hub for the North Bay area. The California Maritime Academy, since 1995 part of the California State University system, was established in the city in 1929. Local attractions include the Six Flags Marine World amusement park and the Vallejo Naval and Historical Museum. Benicia State Recreation Area is nearby. Inc. city, 1868. Pop.
