About El Sobrante

El Sobrante is a census-designated place (CDP) in Contra Costa County, California, United States. The population was 12,260 at the 2000 census. The Spanish name 'El Sobrante' translates to 'leftover', 'remainder', 'extra' or 'surplus' in English.

Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 3.1 square miles (8.0 km²), all of it land.

El Sobrante lies within unincorporated Contra Costa County. Main roads include San Pablo Dam Road (a major road running from Richmond and San Pablo, through El Sobrante, past EBMUD's San Pablo Reservoir), Valley View Road and Appian Way. San Pablo Dam Road and Appian Way both connect to Interstate 80 to the west.

History

Between 5,000 B.C. and 1,000 B.C., an indigenous tribe of people called the Huchiun, a sub-tribe of the Ohlone, came to the East Bay, including El Sobrante. One of the Huichin villages was located where the El Sobrante Library now stands. The Huichin left a now-buried shell mound beside San Pablo Creek.

In the 1770s, the Huchiun were forcefully converted to Christianity by Spanish missionaries, and died in great numbers. After Mexican independence from Spain in the early 19th century, Spanish colonists were given land grants, one of which was Rancho El Sobrante, deeded to Juan Jose and Víctor Castro in 1841. The grant's boundaries were unusually complicated as they were to be determined by the boundaries of the surrounding grants: San Antonio, San Pablo, El Pinole, Boca de la Canada del Pinole, Acalanes, and La Laguna de los Palos Colorados. In this sense, the rancho was el sobrante, the remaining area. Legal disputes concerning the borders and the claims of squatters continued for four decades, with much of the land sold to pay court and attorney costs. Victor Castro was left with 549 acres (2.22 km2) of the original grant. He built an adobe dwelling in what is now El Cerrito, and became one of the first members of the Board of Supervisors of Contra Costa County. Castro died at the age of 90 in 1897. Some of his descendants still live in the area of Castro Ranch Road.

El Sobrante was being called "Oak Grove" by industrial concerns in 1887 when the California and Nevada Railroad put a spur into the area for the purpose of carrying lumber cut from the hills.Then the name Sobrante was applied, with the addition of the Spanish definite article "El" only occurring on the opening of the first post office in 1941.

By the early 20th century, Rancho El Sobrante had been reduced to a number of smaller ranches generally following a dirt road along San Pablo Creek. Many of these ranches were further subdivided. Roads were paved and homes were constructed. El Sobrante changed from a rural to a semi-rural community.

Demographics

As of the census of 2000, there were 12,260 people, 4,676 households, and 3,170 families residing in the CDP. The population density was 3,953.1 people per square mile (1,527.0/km²). There were 4,803 housing units at an average density of 1,548.7/sq mi (598.2/km²).

The median income for a household in the CDP was $48,272, and the median income for a family was $59,342. Males had a median income of $44,232 versus $34,661 for females. The per capita income for the CDP was $24,525. About 6.6% of families and 9.5% of the population were below the poverty line, including 9.5% of those under age 18 and 10.7% of those age 65 or over.
