History in the Sunset – Mount Diablo from the Central Valley of California
Sometimes just taking a few moments to actually “see” that which is around us have a “pleasure moment” of their own. Countless times this “mount” is seen by travelers moving north and south on two major highways of Central California - Interstate Route 5 and Highway 99. Mount Diablo may be seen from a major portion of Northern California … and the view is different from the vantage point of the looker.
This view is from the Central Valley of California – on the side of the frontage road next to Highway 99 in North Stockton. Unlike many of the other “mounts” in California (Mt. Whitney, Mt. Shasta) this mount has a real estate history unique to the California scene.
Today, the 3864 feet high Mt. Diablo is the site of a 20,000 acre state park. The preserved lands around the park total over 90,000 acres and include watersheds, regional parks and over 38 preserves. Viewed from the Central Valley, the more common “double-pyramid” outline is hidden … but it is more clearly seen from the “Bay Area.” So today, the influence of Mt. Diablo is a pretty significant piece of real estate.
The Real Estate History of Mount Diablo started 160 years ago in 1851 when Leander Ransom identified it as the initial point where the Mount Diablo Base and Meridian lines intersect. Cadestral surveys based on metes-and-bounds of real properties find one of their reference points at Mount Diablo.
If you are considering moving to the Central Valley of California … you could see this iconic site every day (weather permitting) across the playground of the Delta. In fact, there are numerous homes that the view can be captured from your living room or decks. Let the members of The Nines Team help you to find that picture perfect spot … and see the “center” of the local real estate Universe …. Mount Diablo …. California!
