Pleasanton’s history dates back to the time period when the Spanish missions were disbanded and big plots of land in California land were given to Mexican families. Jose Amador established the first settlement here, and Pleasanton served as a quick stop for gold miners on the way to dig their fortunes. Augustine Bernal was a man who lived in Pleasanton for most of his life, his house was built around 1850 and is still standing today. He was also a key player in establishing the horse racetrack that brought the Alameda county fairgrounds to Pleasanton. John Kottinger named Pleasanton after a civil war general Alfred Pleasonton, funny story, the city clerk made a typo and the town was named Pleasanton instead of Pleasonton.
The population of Pleasanton is around 82,000 people according to the US Census Bureau’s 2018 estimate. If you are looking to buy a home, it would benefit you to know that the median home value in Pleasanton is drifting around $1.1 million.
