About Oakland
Oakland (pronounced /'o?kl?nd/) is the eighth-largest city in the U.S. state of California[2] and a major West Coast port city, located on the bay about eight miles east of San Francisco. Oakland is a major hub city for the Bay Area subregion collectively called the East Bay, and it is the county seat of Alameda County. Based on United States Census Bureau estimates for 2008, Oakland is the 44th-largest city in the United States with a population of 420,183.[3]

The area was inhabited by the Ohlone people for thousands of years before Spanish settlers displaced them in the 18th and 19th centuries. Much of the land that was to become Oakland was held by the Peralta family under the Rancho San Antonio (Peralta) land grant. The Spanish became Mexican in the 1820s, then in 1846 they were conquered by American forces. Throughout the 1840s and 1850s, American squatters laid legal claim to the land held by the Peralta family, and in 1852 the California legislature incorporated the town of Oakland.
