About: benicia, california
Benicia is located in central California in the San Francisco Bay Area. The city once served as the state capital for almost thirteen months in 1853. In 1847 the city was founded by Dr. Robert Semple, Thomas O. Larkin and Comandante General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo. The General had hoped to name the town Francisca after his wife, Francisca Benicia Carillo de Vallejo, but changed his mind when the nearby town of Yerba Buena changed its name to San Francisco. He chose her second given name, Benicia, instead.
