Dublin History

In the early days, Dublin was the crossroads for two major stage routes. In 1822 Jose Maria Amador was given a vast acreage for his service as a Mexican soldier. He constructed several adobe homes and numerous small structures where Indians made a variety of products including soap, blankets, and farm tools for his rancho. In 1960 housing tracts were being built which initiated the conversion of Dublin from a rural area to the suburbs. The municipality incorporated in 1982.
