The history of Fairfield begins, not surprisingly, with the Native Americans. According to the city's official website, traces of the Ion culture, which dates back five to six thousand years, have been found in the area. The first Europeans in the area were the Spanish, who fought several battles against the local Suisun tribe in an effort to consolidate a foothold against the Russians. What would become the state of California then changed hands several times - it began in the control of the Spanish, then moved to the Mexicans, was independent for a brief period of time and was finally claimed by the United States in 1848 after a brief war with Mexico.
In 1856 Robert Waterman laid out the town of Fairfield, which was named after his hometown. Waterman eventually chose to settle in the area, and a section of the city is to this day named after his wife, Cordelia. Fairfield quickly became the county seat, but it was not until 1903 that the city was incorporated. After that point, the city began to experience significant growth, especially with the construction of the Travis Air force base in 1942. The base was annexed to the city in 1966, and has been a significant tourist attraction since that time.
