Dublin's history dates back to 1772 when Pedro Fages led an expedition of 16 mounted men in search of a land route to Drake's Bay, known then as San Francisco Bay. It was on their return trip that they came across Amador Valley and remembered it. Around 1835, Jose Maria Amador was paid in land for his years as a Mexican soldier and administrator of Mission San Jose, receiving a land grant of 16,517 acres, building adobe homes and many small buildings that were used as shops to build and makes things for his ranch. In 1850, two Irishmen followed, Michael Murray and Jeremiah Fallon, purchasing 1,000 acres and building homes for their families and by 1867, Alameda County was created from parts of Contra Costa and Santa Clara counties.
By 1877, the first school house had been built, along with a church, hotels, a store and other businesses needed to get a town going. Eventually the area known as Dougherty's Station was re-named Dublin and in 1982, the city incorporated. Today, Dublin thrives as a modern city full of life and a great potential for business.
