History

The most recent pre-European inhabitants of the Hayward area were the Ohlone tribe of American Indians. The tribe claims 500 members today. For the college of the same name, see Ohlone College. ...

In the 19th century, the land that is now Hayward became part of Rancho San Lorenzo, a Mexican land grant to Guillermo Castro (1810 - c. 1870) in 1840. The site of his home was on Castro Street (now Mission Boulevard) between C and D Streets, but the structure was severely damaged in the 1868 earthquake on the Hayward Fault that runs directly under that location. In 1930 that site was chosen for the construction of the City Hall which served the City until 1969.[1] The surrounding area is still the center of town.

Hayward was originally known as "Hayward's," then as "Haywood," later as "Haywards," and eventually as "Hayward." There is some disagreement as to how it was named. Some say it was named for Alvinza Hayward, a millionaire from the California Gold Rush.[2] Others believe it was named for William Hayward, who opened a hotel there in 1852.[3] Most historians attribute the name to William Hayward. Regardless of which Hayward the area was named for, it is believed that, because a post office cannot be named after a living person, the name was changed to "Haywood" when the post office was first established. The first post office opened in 1860.[4] There are very few or no other articles that link to this one. ... The California Gold Rush (1848–1855) began shortly after January 24, 1848 (when gold was discovered at Sutters Mill in Coloma). ...


Castro emigrated to Chile with most of his family in 1864, after he lost his land in a card game. His name survives in the community of Castro Valley, located in the valley next to Hayward which Castro used to pasture his cattle. The ranch was split up and sold to various locals, William Hayward among them. William Hayward's fortunes took a turn for the grander when he constructed a resort hotel, which eventually grew to a hundred rooms. The surrounding area came to be called "Hayward's" after the hotel. For the game on The Price Is Right, see Card Game (pricing game). ...

William Hayward eventually became the road commissioner for Alameda County. He used his authority to influence the construction of roads in his own favor. He was also an Alameda County Supervisor. In 1876, a town was chartered by the State of California under the name of 'Haywards'. The name of the post office was then able to change because of the loss of the apostrophe before the "s." This change occurred in 1880.[4] It remained "Haywards" until 1910 when the "s" was officially dropped. William Hayward died in 1891. Official website: http://www. ...


Hayward grew steadily throughout the late 19th century, with an economy based on agriculture and tourism. Important crops were tomatoes, peaches, cherries, and apricots. Chicken and pigeon raising also played an important part. A rail line between Oakland and San Jose, the South Pacific Coast Railroad was established, but destroyed in an earthquake in 1868. It was rebuilt, and provided a vital commercial link to the markets. The Southern Pacific and Western Pacific railroads, two trans-continental railroads, also provided service to the Hayward area.

The 1940s and the Second World War brought an economic and population boom to the area, as factories opened to manufacture war material. Many of the workers stayed after the end of the war.

Mt. Eden and Schafer Park

Palma Ceia Park (left center) and Nimitz Freeway at West Tennyson Road

The first European settlers in Mt. Eden were a band of pioneers from Mt. Eden, Kentucky who (like Hayward) were drawn to California by the Gold Rush. The party disbanded upon reaching the San Francisco Bay, but a few of them settled at a road crossing. They nailed a sign reading "Mt. Eden" to two trees, and the name stuck.

A town developed at this bayshore site. It also had agriculture, but whereas Hayward was a tourist destination, Mt. Eden developed Bay shipping and salt-harvesting industries. The salt companies gradually consolidated; after the demise of the Oliver Salt Company in 1931, only the Leslie Salt Company remained. The shipping industry suffered from increasing competition from roads and railroads. Mt. Eden experienced significant immigration from northern Germany and Denmark.


The historic center of Mt. Eden (now a freeway interchange) was around Telegraph Avenue (now known as Hesperian Boulevard) between Depot Road and Jackson Street. The town was incorporated into Hayward in the late 1950s, though the post office and town name continued to be used until 1984 when the U. S. Postal Service decommissioned the post office.

Economic history: Hunt-Wesson Foods

Hayward Executive Airport

The economy of early Hayward was based largely on the Hunt Brothers Cannery, later known as Hunt-Wesson Foods, opened in Hayward in 1895 by the brothers William and Joseph Hunt, fruit packers originally from Sebastopol, California. The Hunts originally packed local fruit, including cherries, peaches, and apricots, then added tomatoes, which became the mainstay of their business. At its height in the 1960s and 1970s, Hunt's operated three canneries in Hayward (A Street, B Street, and C Street at the Southern Pacific railroad tracks), an adjacent can-making company, a pickle factory, and a glass manufacturing plant. From the 1890s until its closure in 1981, Hunt's employed nearly every available person to process its foods. The impact of Hunt's on the Hayward economy was so large that the air around Hayward was permeated by the smell of tomato ketchup for three months of each year. The canneries closed in 1981 because there were no longer enough produce fields or fruit orchards near the cannery to make the plants economically feasible. Much of the production was moved to the Sacramento Valley.

Transportation

Hayward is served by Interstate 880 (Nimitz Freeway) and Interstate 238. Interstate 580 is just north of the city. It is also served by State Route 92 (Jackson Street) and State Route 238 (Mission Boulevard/Foothill Boulevard). Mission Boulevard has been long known for chronic traffic congestion because of the lack of a freeway alternative to I-880; past proposals to convert Mission Boulevard to a freeway or build the 238 bypass have been controversial. Mission, Jackson and Foothill all converge into one congested intersection south of downtown locally known as "Five Flags", and there has been talk of building an overpass to alleviate traffic.
