San Diego History

The first European to visit the region was a Spaniard named Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo. In 1542, Cabrillo led an expedition that ran along the California coast. On June 27, 1542, Cabrillo set sail from La Navidad in Mexico. Three months later, he anchored in the bay.

Then, in 1821, Mexico became independent from Spain, but in 1846 the United States annexed California.

Although in 1850 the population of San Diego was only a few hundred people, it has already been registered as a city. The whaling house was built in 1856. It was the first two-story brick home in California.

The city grew rapidly in the 1860s. If at first it remained a tiny city with a population of only 731 people, then by 1870 it had already grown to 2,300 people. In 1900, less than 18,000 people lived here, and by 1940 their number grew to 200,000. In the second half of the century, the city continued to flourish, and the number increased to 696,000.

At the beginning of the 20th century, San Diego became the largest naval base in the United States. Thanks to the fleet, the townspeople suffered less in the depression of the 1930s than most of the United States.

In 1915, the Panama-California exhibition was held in the city, and after 20 years - the California-Pacific International Exhibition.

In the 21st century, the main industries of the city are defense and tourism. In 2017, the population of San Diego amounted to 1.4 million people - this is the second largest city in California.
