Contra Costa has a rich history. Dating as far back as prehistoric times, portions of the landforms now in the area (then marshy and grassy savanna) were populated by a wide range of now extinct mammals. There was an extensive settlement within the present county populated by a number of native American tribes. Early interaction of these Native Americans with Europeans came with the Spanish colonization via the establishment of missions in this area. Although there were no missions established within this county, Spanish influence here was direct and extensive, through the establishment of land grants from the King of Spain to favored settlers.Contra Costa County was one of the original 27 counties of California, created in 1850 at the time of statehood.
