More information about Emeryville, California
Emeryville,in Alameda County, is situated between Oakland and Berkeley. Its close location to San Francisco, Silicon Valley and the University of California, Berkeley has been the source of its economic development as it is home to the Peet’s Coffee and Tea, Pixar Animation Studio and several software and biotech companies.
The region was the center of settlements of Native Americans before Spanish colonization. It had a small harbor which loaded produce from a ranch for transport to New England ships. Emeryville became an incorporated town in 1895 and acquired its name from Joseph Stickney Emery who participated in the gold rush and built a narrow-gauge railroad.
Earlier in its history, Emeryville became known for the Mudflat stench which developed from the meat-packing plants along the shore. The mudflats developed into a center for arts during the 1860s and 1970s. Artist from high schools, the California College of Arts and Crafts, UC Berkeley and the Free University of Berkeley created art from driftwood and boards. Later on, the art was removed and the area was turned into a natural marshland and wetland.
