Vacaville’s origins trace back to 1852 when Manuel Vaca sold land to William McDaniel, with the condition that one square mile be created into a town named Vacaville. It was later incorporated as a city in 1892. The city became known for its ranches and farmers, who grew fruit and nuts to sell all over the nation. At one time in the history of the city, it was the fresh fruit capital of California. Today, Vacaville is one of the fastest growing areas in the country, home to a strong community known for their famous crops and the Cow-Town myth!
