The City of Dublin has a rich history dating back to 1772 when Pedro Fages led an expedition through the Amador Valley. In between that period and now, some historical highlights include:

  • In 1835, Jose Maria Amador received a land grant of 16,517 acres in present day Dublin.
  • In 1867, Alameda County was created from parts of Contra Costa and Santa Clara Counties.
  • In 1982, Dublin, California becomes a city after two tries at incorporation in 1967 and 1979.
