The Patwin Indians were the first inhabitants of what is currently known as West Sacramento, California for some 4,000 years ago. These Native Indians frequently numbered in the hundreds and formed villages on the western of the Sacramento River. These Patwin Indians made the best of the abundant natural resources that were offered them by the water and land that surrounded them. They fished and hunted as well as crafted baskets, rafts, boats, and fishing nets from vines, tough grasses, and willows. Their environment provided for all of their needs.
During the 1800’s, when the white pioneers arrived in the area, the tranquil lifestyle of the Patwin Indians changed dramatically. The abundance of fur-bearing animals attracted many trappers and hunters to the Sacramento Valley. Regrettably, with the arrival of these white pioneering explorers came diseases that decimated the population of the Patwin Indian. Epidemics of smallpox and malaria swept throughout the Patwin Indian villages as well as the other surrounding Native Indian villages from 1833 through 1837.
The population of the Native Indians in the Sacramento Valley had decreased to some 20,000 Indians from some 60,000 Indians by the time the epidemics had been contained. Over time, an ever-increasing number of white pioneers arrived in the valley. What few Patwin Indians that remained either became enslaved or employed by the white pioneers, which brought a close the cultural lifestyle of the Patwin Indians.
A Flemish traveler named Jan Lows de Swart, was the first white pioneer to settle permanently in the region of West Sacramento in 1844. Jan became known as John Schwartz, constructed a shack next to the west bank of the Sacramento River some six miles south of the confluence with the American River. Mr. Schwartz was awarded a land grant from the Mexican Governor Manuel in 1845 for an area of land some 20 miles long and one mile wide. After his native homeland, Mr. Schwartz named his newly gotten property the Rancho Nueva Flandria. With the help of his brother George, John developed a salmon fishery nest to the river not long after settling here. They also grew melons and potatoes as well as raising livestock in addition to pickling and drying the salmon. Little did the Schwartz brothers know that within a few years, the great 1848 gold rush would start in California. Thousands of gold miners arrived in the region after the announcement that gold had been discovered at Sutter's Mill.
Mr. Schwartz sold some 600 acres of the Rancho Nueva Flandria to a jack-of-all-trades adventuresome man named James McDowell in 1846. Mr. McDowell, along with his wife, names Margaret, and their three daughters settled in the region that is currently known as Broderick. However, The McDowell family wasn’t unscathed by the violence that frequently occurred during the turbulent days of the Gold Rush era. Mr. McDowell was shot and killed in a barroom tussle that he had reportedly started in 1849. Margaret McDowell had to find a way to support herself as well as her three daughters as the result of the loss of the only supporter of the McDowell family.
Margaret McDowell took boarders into her home at first as a way of earning some income. However, it wasn’t long before she realized that this was simply not bringing in sufficient income. It became obvious the her most valuable asset was the land that she owned. Mrs. Schwartz hired a land surveyor to plot some 160 acres, which was then subdivided into 41 blocks in 1849. Within this platted area, which she called the town of Washington, she sold individual lots. A man named August Kaye bought the first lot for the sum of $500. The rural Town of Washington experienced a significant increase in shipping activity as well as in business, during the ten years after it was established. The California Steam Navigation Company was one of the first companies to be established in the town, which was attracted to the region in 1859 as the result of the close proximity to the Sacramento River. Other economic businesses that were established in early Washington included restaurants, saloons, and hotels necessary to cater to the needs of weary travelers. On their way to Sacramento, many travelers had to make the harsh trek through the marshlands and welcomed the stopover at the Town of Washington.
During the early days of what had become West Sacramento, other businesses that found success were the farming and fishing industries. Fishermen saw the profitable potential in clams, crayfish, eel, catfish, sturgeon, and salmon. The river community was flourishing by supplying fish markets to both San Francisco and Sacramento. Also, the fertile soil in the valley produced abundant crops of sweet potatoes, cucumbers, melons, and corn. Around this time, the dairy industry was also established in West Sacramento.
