You may know San Jose as Silicon Valley's largest city, but this San Francisco Bay Area town has a rich history dating back to the Ohlone peoples of California. The Spanish invaded in the 18th century, and it became part of Mexico in the 19th century. California later achieved U.S. statehood in 1850 and San Jose became its first state capital. Since the economic boom after World War II, San Jose has maintained its place as a center for technology and innovation.
