Davis Mesothelioma


Davis, is a city in Yolo County, California.  Davis is located in the Sacramento River Valley in Northern California.  The 2022, U.S. Census estimates Davis’s population as 67,048 residents.  Davis is 15.3 miles from Sacramento, 25 miles from Travis, 43.8 miles from Vallejo, 46 miles from Mare Island Naval Shipyard and 73 miles from San Francisco.



The Indigenous residents of the land that is now Davis were the Southern Patwin Indians, members of the Wintun Tribe.  The Patwin Tribe lived in the area for thousands of years.  They were hunter gathers and ate acorns, pine nuts, blackberries, juniper berries, Indian potatoes, sweet potatoes, game and fish.  The Patwins traded with their neighbors the Wappo, Pomo and Lake Miwok tribes. 

The indigenous population was estimated at 200,000 before the Spaniards arrived.  The native population was decimated by European diseases, slavery, armed conflict and forced evacuation to reservations or ranchos. By 1870, the Patwin population declined to 12,000.  Today the Wintun Native Americans are members of three recognized tribes.

Davis started in the 1850’s, as an agricultural and cattle ranch town.  In1868, the California Railroad bought 7000 acres from settlers Jerome and Mary Davis.  The railroad started service on August 24, 1868, from Vallejo to the Davis junction.  The town grew around the depot. By 1870, Davis was platted, businesses started, a schoolhouse and church was built and there was a population boon.  The town was originally named Davisville but was changed to Davis around 1907.  On March 28, 1917, Davis incorporated as a city in California.



In 1906, the town was transformed into a college town when it was chosen as the new site for the University State Farm which was under the control of the University of California, Berkeley, College of Agriculture.  Construction of the University State Farm began in 1907, and the school was opened in 1908.  In 1959, the University State Farm became the University of California, Davis. 

Ultimately, U. C. Davis expanded with the General University for academic disciplines (1959), College of Engineering (1962), School of Law (1964), School of Medicine (1968), and U.C. Davis Medical Center (1973).  U. C. Davis is now the largest University of California campus with 5,300 acres.

For over 50 years bicycling has been a major mode of transportation in Davis.  In 1966, a small group of faculty advocated for bike lanes on city streets, and bike paths were developed on the Davis campus.  Also, in the 1960s, Davis required bike paths in new developments.  Davis has become known as the Bicycle Capital of the United States. It won the League of American Bicyclist – Platinum Award. 

Davis construction builders have pioneered energy efficient buildings.  Beginning in 1957, Davis required mandatory energy conservation standards for all new construction.  Davis has won awards and national recognition for innovated energy conservation.
