Naval history.

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. Mare Island got its name from, General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo. One day, his animals were being moved across the San Pablo Bay on an old raft when the it capsized. Amid the wreck, a mare saved herself by swimming ashore. She was discovered later living on the island, inspiring General Vallejo to name the island: Island de la Yegua or Island of the Mare.
