Overview

Introduction to Fremont, California

Incorporated in 1956 as a merger of five localities, Fremont is part of the combined metropolitan areas of San Jose, San Francisco and Oakland. Fremont is located in the northern part of the state, about 35 miles southeast of San Francisco.

Fremont History

Beginning as Mission San José in 1797, Fremont was an agricultural community in the 1800s. It grew rapidly during the Gold Rush of the mid 1800's, and again in the mid 1900s when General Motors built an automobile plant. Its most recent growth occurred in the 1980s and 1990s as it rode the high technology wave.

Precipitation is about 15 inches per year. Temperatures reach 90 degrees about 20 days of the year. July daily highs average in the 80s, while lows average in the 50s. January daily highs average around 60, and lows near 40.

Located within the Silicon Valley, Fremont has a large manufacturing base, much of it associated with electronics. Large employers include the NUMMI auto manufacturing plant, a General Motors/Toyota joint-venture and Lam Research Corporation, a semiconductor processing equipment maker.

Cultural, historical, and other leisure attractions include:

  • The Fremont Festival of the Arts.
  • The Fremont Symphony Orchestra.
  • The Museum of Local History.
  • The Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum.
  • The Mission San Jose and Museum.
