Overview

Introduction to Antioch, California

The city of Antioch, known as the Gateway to the Delta, is located on the banks of the San Joaquin River in Northern California. It is situated in Contra Costa County, approximately 45 miles east of San Francisco, 50 miles west of Stockton, and 60 miles southwest of Sacramento. Antioch got its name in 1851 after the Biblical city of Antioch. Incorporated in 1872, the city's first major industries were hay, lumber and shipping. Salmon fishing also played a significant role in Antioch's economy. In later years, the coal mines of Nortonville and Somersville (now both tourist attractions) helped put Antioch on the map, due to the prolific amount of coal produced there during the latter-half of the 19th century.
