Some history of the city of Fremont
Fremont is named after John C. Fremont, who came  through Mission Pass in the 1840's, however  Mission San Jose, founded in 1797, is one of the oldest settlements in the area and the only mission in Alameda County.  Ohlone Indians, the area's original inhabitants, built and maintained the mission under the direction of the Spanish padres.

In 1850, when California achieved statehood, the community was growing with settlers. 

In 1868 Leland Stanford bought and built an estate and distillery, and planted vineyards.  Weibel Vineyards later took over the winery  which today is the site of new homes with a bottling operation the only evidence that a winery once thrived on the site.

From 1912 to 1961, the Niles area became the headquarters of Essanay Studios.  Many westerns movies were produced in Niles Canyon including "The Tramp", Charlie Chaplin's masterpiece.

In 1956, the communities of Mission San Jose, Centerville, Niles, Irvington and Warm Springs combined to form the city of Fremont
