BR Landscapers in Alamo
Alamo is an unincorporated area with a population of less than 15,000. With no city government, it receives services from the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff.
Alamo got its' name from the Spanish word álamo, meaning "poplar", because of the poplar trees that lined San Ramon creek.
In 1833, Alamo was part of a larger area known as Rancho San Ramon that was deeded to Mariano Castro and Bartolo Pacheco. Mariano Castro held the portion that included Alamo.
In later years, the Hemme, Bollinger, Jones and Stone ranches occupied the land. These ranches began grazing cattle and raising wheat and other grains. In 1891, the Hemme train station was placed near today's Hemme Avenue. It was later renamed the Alamo station.
Over time, orchards and vineyards dotted the area. Almonds, walnuts, pears, grapes and other fruit thrived in the temperate climate. In 1873, Alamo pioneer Myron Hall grafted Persian cuttings to native walnut trees and helped start the prosperous walnut industry in Contra Costa County.
The Alamo post office is the oldest continuously operated post office in the valley.
