More About West Oakland
Located along the waterfront of the Port of Oakland, West Oakland has something of a colorful past.
Once deeded in the early 1800s to Spanish Army soldier Luis Maria Peralta in what would go down as one of the largest land grants in history, by mid-century, men who had been leasing the land began illegally selling off farm plots. Among these squatters was none other than Horace Carpentier, who would become Oakland’s first mayor.
Near the turn of the century, West Oakland swelled in population as people from across the United States, Mexico, Asia, and Europe began to make their homes here. By the late 1800s, the area — complete with its own baseball team, the Oakland Oaks — would begin a cycle of upheaval and renewal that spanned the twentieth century and continues to this day.
