San Ramon began as an agricultural town well before the first settlers came to live in the area. Native Americans lived off the land migrating seasonally across the coastal area. When the Spanish arrived, they founded Mission San Jose in 1797, where large tracts of land were converted into grazing grounds for cattle and sheep. Over the centuries San Ramon became well known as an agricultural area that produced fruits and produce for the San Francisco Bay Area.
