Communities in Vallejo, California

Deep with naval historic roots.

Vallejo offers a lot to explore, including Mare Island, the first U.S. Naval installation on the west coast. Mare Island has played an important part in American and Naval history and its clever name comes with a legend to match. The tale has it that Mare Island got its name from Vallejo’s namesake itself, General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo. One day, General Vallejo’s animal stock was being moved across the San Pablo Bay on a rickety old raft when a wind squall capsized the boat in the bay. Amid the wreck, a nameless white mare saved herself by swimming ashore. She was discovered later living on the island, inspiring General Vallejo to give the island a new name: Island de la Yegua or Island of the Mare.
