About: milpitas, california

During Spanish expeditions in the late 1700s they established several missions in the San Francisco Bay Area. During this time, what is now Milpitas served as a crossroads between Mission San Jose de Guadalupe and Mission Santa Clara de Asis. When the land was divided to become ranchos, the Rancho Milpitas was formed. In Spanish Milpitas means "little corn fields" or "garden where maize is grown." The Spanish ranchers did in fact use the agricultural field to grow corn.
