Fremont, California

Located on the southeast side of the San Francisco Bay, Fremont is a city of over 208,000 people with an area of 92 square miles, making it the fourth most populous city in the Bay Area and California's fifth largest city in area. With its moderate climate  and its proximity to major universities, shopping areas, recreational and cultural activities, employment centers, major airports, and the Bay Area Rapid Transit system, Fremont captures metropolitan living at its best.

The Fremont area was first settled with the establishment of Mission San Jose by the Spanish. In the mid-1840's, John C. Fremont mapped a trail through Mission Pass to provide access for American settlers into the southeastern San Francisco Bay Area. In 1853, Washington Township was established, taking in the communities of Mission San Jose, Centerville, Niles, Irvington, and Warm Springs. On January 23, 1956, these communities joined together to form the City of Fremont.

From its incorporation in 1956, Fremont grew from a collection of farm based communities with a population of about 26,000. With the guidance of an award winning general plan, Fremont has evolved into a community of wide landscaped streets, 46 city parks, the San Francisco National Wildlife Refuge, Coyote Hills Regional Park, and the unique Ardenwood Farm Historical Park. With a vibrant commercial/industrial sector, Fremont is home to the New United Motor Manufacturing plant (NUMMI), a joint venture between General Motors and Toyota, producing Toyota Tacoma pickup trucks, the Geo Prizm, and the Toyota Corolla.

As a part of the world famous Silicon Valley, Fremont also is proud to be home to Lam Research, LSI Logic/Micronics Computers, Logitech, and HMT Technology as well as many smaller but rapidly growing technology companies.
