National City is a city in Southern California, in San Diego County.  The 2022, U.S. Census Bureau estimates that National City’s population is 55,550.  National City is 6.4 miles from the city of San Diego, 124.5 miles from Los Angeles and 14.8 miles from the U.S.-Mexican border.    



National City and San Diego County are home to the Kumeyaay people.  The Kumeyaay people generally include the Diegueno, Tapai, Ipai and other tribes.  When the Spaniards arrived in 1769 there were nearly 20,000 Kumeyaay natives living in San Diego County.

National City sits on part of the old Spanish land grant called Rancho del Rey, which translates to the Ranch of the King.  Rancho del Rey was established by the Spaniards in 1795, was 26,631 acres and used for cattle grazing,  In 1821, when Mexico declared their Independence from Spain, it changed the name to Rancho de la Nacion, which means Ranch of the Nation.  In 1848, when California became part of the United States pursuant to the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, the residents referred to the area as the National Ranch.

In 1868, San Francisco contractors, Frank Kimball and his brothers Warren and Levi, bought Rancho de la Nacion,  They established the town by clearing the land, bringing a railroad to town and building homes, roads, and a wharf.    

In 1870, the first Post Master was George Kimball, Frank Kimball’s brother, who ran the Post Office from his home in National City.  In 1884, Frank Kimball opened the first public library in his home in National City.

In 1882, the California Southern Railroad Depot was built in National City.  It was the first Pacific Coast terminus station of the Santa Fe Railway.  The first transcontinental trains arrived in 1885, which resulted in a large land boom in California, including in National City.  On September 17, 1887, the town incorporated and the residents changed the named to National City. 

In the early 1900s, National City’s port became part of the Naval Base San Diego, the largest Naval base on the west coast.  National City became home to the largest number of servicemen and the bars and businesses catered to adult entertainment.  The area became known as the “Mile of Bars.”  The area has since transformed with the growth of auto-dealerships and is now known as the “Mile of Cars.”

In 1992, a paleontological dig in National City discovered a Cerutti Mastodon site with bones at the site dated to around 130,700 years ago.  Today, National City is a diverse urban suburban city.  In 2012, it was honored as the most walkable city in San Diego County.
