As far back as 1870, Walnut Creek barely had 100 people. 10 years later, however, that number had tripled. Surprisingly, it wouldn’t be 40 years until there was a significant uptick in the population. 1930 saw the number of people increase to 1,000, a dismal number compared to the 63,673 people now living here. Another threefold increase in population from 1960 to 1970 saw another 20,000 people move in bringing the 1970 total to about 30,000 people. Why such a surge in growth? The surrounding areas had seen a huge increase in people moving due to the post-WWII industrial boom and many industries were located just within reach of Walnut Creek. Many could live here without the hustle and bustle of the inner cities just miles to the west. The local economy is centered mostly around healthcare, with the two biggest employers being John Muir Health and Kaiser Permanente both employing a combined number of about 7,000 employees. Most residents travel towards the intra-bay for work every day. When they return home, they can feel comfortable in the peaceable surroundings, relatively quiet with homes that are as beautiful as any. Housing values here continue to rise/ In fact, in just one year, from December 2015 to the same month in 2016, home values rose 6.1% to $822,700. It is predicted that growth will continue.
