History

After the former rancho of Don Mariano Castro was split, the south eventually became the city of Sunnyvale, and the north became Mountain View. The town began as a stage stop on the route between San Francisco and San Jose (corresponding to El Camino Real), close to present-day Grant Road. With the coming of the railroad, the center of town eventually moved to its current location at Castro Street. Alta California (Upper California) was formed in 1804 when the province of California, then a part of the Spanish colony of New Spain, was divided in two along the line separating the Franciscan missions in the north from the Dominican missions in the south. ...

Much of Mountain View was agricultural through the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Row crops and orchards were common during this era when there was open space between Palo Alto and Mountain View. In Bittersweet: memories of Old Mountain View, an oral history, residents of Japanese ancestry recall their family's strawberry fields adjoining Moffett Field. Orchards lined much of Grant Road and Miramonte. In the early 1900s, grapes were a common crop in the area of present-day Continental Circle. Phylloxera ended grape production in Mountain View in the early 1900s. Grape Phylloxera (Daktulosphaira vitifoliae, family Phylloxeridae, superfamily Aphidoidea) is a serious pest of commercial grapevines worldwide, originally native to eastern North America. ...


During the Cold War, the drone of Navy P-3 turboprop aircraft was a constant presence, Moffett Field being the home of squadrons of them and their almost constant touch-and-go training flights. The horns of railroad locomotives were also frequently heard. For other uses, see Cold War (disambiguation). ...


The El Camino Hospital District, a government entity called a Special District under the California Government Code, came to life in the 1960s. The hospital facility at 2500 Grant Road has been in continual operation since. El Camino Hospitalis a 395-bed hospital based in Mountain View, California. ...


Most people using the term Silicon Valley would include Mountain View in that region. An early Silicon Valley company was Fairchild Camera and Instrument Company, located along Whisman Road. Several of Intel's founders came from Fairchild. Local watering holes for workers included Chubby's Broiler (which once stood at Ellis and Fairchild near Hwy 101, but which moved in 1999 to near Tasman and Lawrence Expressway in Sunnyvale[1]) and Walker's Wagon Wheel on Middlefield Road near Whisman (since torn down). Folklore was that semiconductor pioneers were collaborative and met at the Wagon Wheel to discuss problems they were having with production. Employees are more wealthy, competitive and proprietary today and tend to err on the side of protecting their company's intellectual property and trade secrets, usually having signed forms to do so as part of their employment.

In May, 2004, City Attorney Michael Martello admitted to having an extramarital affair with Pamela Read, the head of Foothill Disposal Co., the city's garbage company, who was also president of the Chamber of Commerce's board of directors. Martello was accused by Read's husband of lying to city council members about when the affair began, and misusing city funds in supporting an increase totaling over $740,000 for the garbage company.[4] While the accusations concerning whether Martello promptly disclosed the affair were not resolved, he was cleared of financial wrongdoing after sixteen city employees said that he "had no involvement with the increased garbage fees or any other matters involving ... the Chamber of Commerce."[5] The City Attorney's Office is responsible for drafting contracts pertaining to the City's business.[6]

In Mountain View public elementary schools the class size ratio is 20.4 students per full-time-equivalent teacher,[7] while that of the neighboring Palo Alto Unified School District is 16.9.[8] The Mountain View-Whisman district is a "Revenue Limit" district, meaning that the state provides additional funding to bring per-pupil spending up to a certain minimum limit, while the Mountain View High School District and neighboring Palo Alto's school district are "Basic Aid" districts, meaning that no additional funding is required to meet the state's per-pupil spending minimum, and the district keeps any excess above it. Mountain View taxes a large portion of its most valuable commercial and industrial properties in the Shoreline Regional Park Community at very low relative levels, and until the creation of a joint-powers agreement (JPA) in 2006, none of those property taxes reached any local schools.
