History

Long home to at least three major Miwok villages, the area that is now San Rafael seems to have almost always been populated. Spanish priests founded a mission here in 1817 called Mission San Rafael Arcangel. The mission was initially a hospital for the local tribes but was later expanded to provide a full range of services. Missions served as military outposts, resting points for travelers, and as places to convert the local tribes to Christianity.

The mission was abandoned in 1844, but the town of San Rafael continued to grow around the former mission buildings. The town was formally incorporated in 1874. In 1879 the railroad arrived, making San Rafael an important regional hub and connecting the city with the national rail network.
