Vallejo is the largest city in Solano County, California, United States. The population was 115,942 at the 2010 census.
Vallejo was once home of the Coastal Miwok as well as Suisunes and other Patwin Native American tribes. Although the town is named after General Vallejo, the man regarded as the true founder of Vallejo is John B. Frisbie. After his daughter Epifania married Frisbie, General Vallejo granted him power of attorney for the land grant. It was Frisbie who hired E.H. Rowe, the man who designed the city layout and who named the east-west streets after states and the north-south streets after California counties.Downtown Vallejo retains many of its historic Victorian and Craftsman homes.
