San Jose is a city in and the county seat of Santa Clara County and it is also the third largest city in the state of California with a population of just under one million residents. It is the tenth largest city in the United States and is located in the middle of Silicon Valley. San Jose is a major part of Silicon Valley and sits in the heart of one of the most technologically-advanced areas of the United States, and until the population boom of the 1960’s had some of the last undeveloped land in the entire Bay Area.
It was first founded in 1777 as the first town in Nueva California, which was a Spanish colony in northern California. It was a large farming community and helped supply the military installations in San Francisco and Monterey, and was also California’s first capital after it achieved statehood in 1850.
San Jose experienced a major economic and population boom after World War II, thanks mainly to the many soldiers returning from the war settling down in San Jose and the surrounding area. This population boom signaled the end of San Jose’s small-time farming days, and in recent years the city has transformed into a major technology center in the state of California.
