Emeryville's History

Emeryville.gif The City of Emeryville lies on the east shore of San Francisco Bay between Oakland and Berkeley, directly opposite the Golden Gate and San Francisco.

The city is small, just over 1 square mile, but its strategic location in the center of the Bay Area urban core at the confluence of several major freeways, 1 of the world's busiest bridges, and transcontinental rail lines with service to Seattle, Los Angeles, and Chicago makes it a highly desirable place to live, work, and shop.

Even before it was called "Emeryville," this place was recognized as an ideal location for settlement by indigenous people and the Spanish and Americans that followed them
