Ukiah History

Ukiah was founded in 1856 as a part of Sonoma County. With the creation of Mendocino County in 1859, Ukiah was selected as the county seat. The area is actually part of the Yokayo Rancho, which was a Spanish land grant in Alta California. The lumber boom of the late 1940s supported a large part of Ukiah's early population, as the logging of redwoods was a major industry at that time.
