Vacaville Then & Now

One hundred years after it was settled by the Vaca and Peña families in 1842, Vacaville’s population still numbered only 1,608 people. The population boomed by the 1960s and doubled in each of the next two decades and is now home to more than 100,000 people. Discover pictures and stories from more than 150 years of small-town pleasures, festivals, parades, and concerts in the park.

Author Carole Noske and photographer Brian Irwin use Vacaville Heritage Council archives for this look at Vacaville’s colorful past and how it influences the community’s present.
