The City of Pinole is a bedroom community in Contra Costa County in the San Francisco Bay area of Northern California. Over 19,000 people make their home in Pinole. 



According to legend, a group of explorers had run out of food in the area, and were fed ‘pinole’,  a porridge of ground and roasted grains, grasses and seeds, by the natives.  The explorers named their camp El Pinole, after the dish.

Before the European settlement the Pinole area was the home to bands of the Miwok people, hunter gatherers who were sustained by the acorns, roots, berries and plentiful game of the area.

Pinole, like much of the Bay area, Pinole had its origins in a Mexican land grant.  In 1823, Ygnacio Martinez, commandant of the Presidio of San Francisco received a land grant of nearly 18,000 acres. The grant, known as Rancho El Pinole, bordered the Carquinez Strait in what is now known as Contra Costa County.  After Martinez’s death in 1848 his eleven children inherited the estate.

During the 1850s, Bernardo Fernandez from Portugal started a trading facility on the shores of San Pablo Bay.  By 1882 he owned four large warehouses and five acres of waterfront property, eventually building a pier, a mercantile, and a post office. By the time of his death, his real estate holdings expanded to nearly 20,000 acres, including property in Oakland and San Francisco.   In 1894, he built the 22 room Fernandez Mansion in Pinole, which is still standing and is listed on National Register of Historic Places.
