The history as habitat here began more than 10,000 years ago when the Saclans, a Miwok indian sub-group settled here in a number of villages. In 1797, the Saclans fought a battle with the Spaniards on what was later to become the city center.
In 1847, Elam Brown, one of the first Yankee settlers in Contra Costa County, led a fourteen family wagon train through the Donner Pass just days before the ill-fated Donner party. When he arrived, Brown bought a 3,329 acre Mexican land grant called Rancho Acalanus, which is now almost all of present day Lafayette. He built his first of three homes in February of 1848, making it the first community in central Contra Costa County.
