It is headquarters to a number of high-tech companies, including HP, Space Systems/Loral, VMware, Ford Research and Innovation Center, PARC, IDEO, Skype, Houzz, SAP Labs, and Lockheed Martin. The area of modern Palo Alto was first recorded by the 1769 party of Gaspar de Portolá, a 64-man, 200-horse expedition setting out from San Diego to find Monterey Bay. On November 29, 1777, Pueblo de San Jose de Guadalupe was established by order of the viceroy despite the displeasure of the local mission. In 1839, their daughter María Luisa Soto (1817-1883) married John Coppinger, who was to be, in 1841, the grantee of Rancho Cañada de Raymundo (in modern San Mateo county) Upon his death in 1847, Maria inherited it and later married a visiting boat captain, John Greer.

History

Palo Alto is the primary city name, but also E Palo Alto, East Palo Alto are acceptable city names or spellings. The official name is City of Palo Alto. The area of modern Palo Alto was first recorded by the 1769 party of Gaspar de Portolá, a 64-man, 200-horse expedition setting out from San Diego to find Monterey Bay. The group trekked past the bay without recognizing it and continued north. In 1777, Father Junipero Serra established the Mission Santa Clara de Asis, whose northern boundary was San Francisquito Creek. The land grant, Rancho Rinconada del Arroyo de San Francisqito, of about 2,230 acres (9.0 km²) was given to Maria Antonia Mesa in 1841. In 1863, it was whittled down in the courts to 6,981 acres (28.25 km²). Stories say the grand hacienda was built on the former meager adobe of José Peña near Ferne off San Antonio Road, midway between Middlefield and Alma Street. It was ruined in the 1906 earthquake and its lumber was used to build a large barn nearby, which was said to have lingered until the early 1950s. On April 10, 1853, 250 acres (2.2 km²), comprising Barron Park, Matero Creek and Stanford Business Park, was sold for $2,000 to Elisha Crosby. In 1880, Secundino Robles bought the land to satisfy a debt he owed to Sarah Wallis. The name of the community was later attached to the community that started to be known as Palo Alto.

Palo Alto is a member of a joint powers authority (the Northern California Power Agency), which cooperatively generates electricity for government power providers such as the City of Santa Clara, Redding, and the Port of Oakland.

The former Regional Bell Operating Company in Palo Alto was Pacific Telephone, now called AT&T Inc., and previously called SBC and Pacific Bell.
