History[edit] First Mayor's House circa 1868 The land currently occupied by the city of Salinas is thought to have been settled by Native Americans known as the Esselen prior to 200 AD.[14] Between 200 and 500 AD, they were displaced by the Rumsen group of Ohlone speaking people. The Rumsen-Ohlone remained as the inhabitants of the area for approximately another 1200 years, and in the 1700s, were the group of native inhabitants contacted and recorded by the first Spanish explorers of the Salinas area. Upon the arrival of the Spanish, large Spanish land grants were initially issued for the Catholic Missions and also as bonuses to soldiers. Later on after Mexican independence, smaller land grants continued to be issued for ranchos where mostly cattle were grazed. One of the many land grants was the Rancho Las Salinas land grant, part of which included the area of modern-day Salinas. As a result of the many new cattle ranches, a thriving trade eventually developed in cattle hide shipments, shipping primarily out of the Port of Monterey.[15] In 1848 California officially became a part of the United States of America. This transition followed several years of battles in the Salinas area with John Fremont flying the American flag on the highest peak of the Gabilan Mountains and claiming California for the United States. Before the transition to American administration, Monterey had been the capital of California. For a short while after the transition, California was ruled by martial law.[15] On September 9, 1850, California was admitted to the Union and became a State, celebrated as California Admission Day. In the 1850s a junction of two main stage coach routes was located 18 miles east of Monterey and along the big bend of what is locally referred to as the Alisal Slough.[16] In 1854, six years after becoming a part of the United States, a group of American settlers living in the vicinity of this route-junction opened a post office at the junction, naming their town "Salinas," apparently a reference to the original "Rancho Las Salinas" name for the area,[11] which in turn was named in spanish for the salt marshes of the area around the central Salinas slough, which was drained. Soon thereafter, in 1856, a traveler's inn called the Halfway House was opened at that junction in Salinas.[11] (The nearby Salinas River, was apparently only later named by an American cartographer, after the nearest town of Salinas in 1858. Previously that river had gone by the name: "Rio de Monterey."). The streets of Salinas were laid out in 1867, and the town was incorporated in 1874.[11] The conversion of grazing land to crops and the coming of the rail road in 1868 to transport goods and people was a major turning point in the history and economic advancement of Salinas. Dry farming of wheat, barley, and other grains as well as potatoes and mustard seed was common in the 1800s. Chinese labor drained thousands of acres of swampland to become productive farmland, and as much early farm labor was done by Chinese immigrants, Salinas boasted the second largest Chinatown in the state, slightly smaller than San Francisco.[17] Irrigation changed farming in Salinas to mainly row crops of root vegetables, grapes and sugar beets. Many major vegetable producers placed their headquarters in Salinas. The historic prevalence of row crops is documented by aerial photographic interpretation of Earth Metrics,[18] Driven by the profitable agricultural industry, Salinas had the highest per capita income of any city in the United States in 1924.[19] View of barracks at the Salinas Assembly Center Wikimedia Commons has media related to Salinas Assembly Center. During World War II, the Salinas Rodeo Grounds was one of the locations used as a temporary detention camp for citizens and immigrant residents of Japanese ancestry, before they were relocated to more permanent and remote facilities. One of seventeen such sites overseen by the Wartime Civilian Control Administration, the Salinas Assembly Center was built after President Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, authorizing the removal and confinement of Japanese Americans living on the West Coast. The camp opened on April 27, 1942 and held a total of 3,608 people before closing two months later on July 4. Sargent House, a historic Victorian home on Central Avenue Following World War II major urban and suburban development converted much farmland to city. The city experienced two particularly strong growth spurts in the 1950s and 1960s, and again in the 1990s and early 2000s.[12] Aerial photographic interpretation indicate such major conversion of cropland to urban uses over the time period 1956 to 1968,[20][21] while the city annexed the adjacent communities of Alisal and Santa Rita during this time.[22] The Harden Ranch, Creekbridge and Williams Ranch neighborhoods constituting much of the city's North-East were built almost exclusively between 1990 and 2004.[12] Salinas was also the birthplace of writer and Nobel Prize laureate John Steinbeck. The historic downtown, known as Oldtown Salinas, features much fine Victorian architecture, and is home to the National Steinbeck Center, the Steinbeck House and the John Steinbeck Library. Major development took place in the 1990s, with the construction of Creekbridge, Williams Ranch, and Harden Ranch.[23] Ethnology[edit] Census tract map showing prevalence of Spanish speakers [24] Traditionally an Anglophonic European American settlement, Salinas became home to a significant Asian minority who joined European-American immigrants in the agriculture and fishing industries at the turn of the 20th century. Meanwhile, the neighboring and, at the time, unincorporated community of Alisal became a mecca for Hispanic immigrants primarily from Mexico, drawn to opportunities in the area's agricultural industry. When annexed in 1963, Alisal was described as a large Mexican-American enclave, added to a city that was still otherwise majority European-American.[25] Hispanic immigration peaked from the 1980s through the early 2000s. Mostly European-American neighborhoods in North Salinas, an expansion of the original city built mostly in the 1950s and 60s, became majority Latino by 2010. As Latino immigrants and their descendants became more affluent and established, the proportion of Hispanics increased in the city's more affluent South and North-East. From the time it was first built in the late 1980s, to the 2000 Census, Creekbridge – the city's highest income area, least affected by poverty - remained mostly European-American and minority Latino.[26] By 2010, however, US-born Latinos had become the largest ancestry group in the area. In South Salinas, the city's original area and most European-American section, Hispanics typically constitute over 40% of residents.[27] Despite its key role in the city's early development and significant Filipino immigration over recent decades, the Asian-American community of Salinas remains small compared to California average. The highest concentration of Asian-Americans is found in Creekbridge, where they constitute roughly 1 in 5 residents.[28] Along with the great influx of legal immigrants was an influx of undocumented immigrants. By 2011, Salinas had one of the highest concentrations of unauthorized immigrants in the state and nationwide. Of the city's three main zip codes, two had 10%-15% of residents being unauthorized immigrants, and a third over 15%.[29] The fear many undocumented immigrants have of government authorities has been a great obstacle faced by local law enforcement in crime investigations, community relations, and gathering information needed for effective policing. As a result, Salinas police department policy is to not verify immigration status of individuals coming into contact with city police officers.[30]

Geography[edit] Salinas and the Salinas Valley. Fremont Peak and the Gabilan Range are also shown. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 23.2 square miles (60 km2), 99.84% of it land and 0.16% of it water. Prior to mass agricultural and urban development, much of the city consisted of rolling hills bisected by wooded creeks and interspersed with marsh land.[25] Today, the city is located mostly on leveled ground, with some rolling hills and wooded gulches with creeks remaining in the north-eastern Creekbridge and Williams Ranch neighborhoods, as well as the Laurel Heights section of East Salinas.[31] The natural ecosystems accompanying the area's topography and environment have been recreated in Natividad Creek Park and adjacent Upper Carr Lake.[32] The city rests about 18 meters (59 feet) above sea level, and it is located roughly eight miles from the Pacific Ocean. The Gabilan and Santa Lucia mountain ranges border the Salinas Valley to the east and to the west, respectively. Both mountain ranges and the Salinas Valley run approximately 90 miles (145 km) south-east from Salinas towards King City. The Salinas River runs the length of the Salinas Valley and empties into the Pacific Ocean at the center of the Monterey Bay. During the summer months the river flows partially underground and it is this extensive underground aquifer that allows for irrigation of cropland in an area without much annual rainfall.

Snow in the city of Salinas is extremely rare. Salinas has cool and moderate temperatures, due to the “natural air conditioner” that conveys ocean air and fog from the Monterey Bay to Salinas, while towns to the north and south of Salinas experience hotter summers, as mountains block the ocean air. Thus, Salinas weather is closer to that of the Central Coast of California, rather than that of inland valleys, and thus has a mild Mediterranean climate with typical daily highs ranging from around 63 °F (17 °C) in the winter to around 75 °F (24 °C) in the summer. According to the Weather Channel, monthly average temperature highs range from 61 to 75 °F or 16.1 to 23.9 °C. The record highest temperature was 106 °F (41 °C) on September 14, 1971.[33] The record lowest temperature was 18 °F (−8 °C) on December 21, 1937. Annually, there are an average of 5.5 days with 90 °F (32 °C)+ highs, and an average of 11.7 days with lows reaching the freezing mark or lower.[34] Salinas is in the top ten American cities for cleanest air quality,[35] because the offshore marine layer generates winds that blow smog further inland.[citation needed] The difference between ocean and air temperature also tends to create heavy morning fog during the summer months, known as the marine layer, driven by an onshore wind created by the local high pressure sunny portions of the Salinas Valley, which extend north and south from Salinas and the Bay. The average annual rainfall for the city is approximately 13.26 inches or 336.8 millimetres. The wettest “rain year” since records at the present station began in 1959 was from July 1997 to June 1998 with 34.63 inches (879.6 mm) of precipitation, and the driest from July 1971 to June 1972 with 7.29 inches (185.2 mm). The most precipitation in one month was 11.10 inches (282 mm) in February 1998. The record maximum 24-hour precipitation was 2.96 inches (75 mm) on January 23, 2000.[36] Occasionally, there is snowfall on the peaks of the Gabilan and Santa Lucia mountain ranges, but snow in the city itself is extremely rare, occurring about once every 5 to 15 years on average. An inch of snow fell in Salinas on February 26, 2011.

Demographics[edit] Income, poverty and education: 2012–2015[edit] As of the 2011–2015 American Community Survey by the U.S. Census Bureau, Salinas had a median household income of $49,840, slightly lower than to the United States average of $53,889.[39] The city was less educated than California and the nation as a whole, with the notable exception of sizable neighborhoods in the southern and northeastern portions of the city (see thematic maps and table below). The most affluent and educated neighborhoods in Salinas are Creekbrige (North-East), Laurelwood (Central-West) and South Salinas (South-West). Hebbron Heights and East Salinas, also known as the Alisal, had lower educational attainment and household income when compared with other parts of the city - as it has been since the Alisal area containing it was annexed by the city in 1963.[40] While most neighborhoods saw 1 in every 4-to-6 residents live in poverty, only 1 in 25 residents lived in poverty in Creekbridge - by far the lowest rate in the city and less than a third of state and national average. Regarding educational attainment, the pattern was different. There remained a significant disparity across the city, but the city's most affluent neighborhoods failed to exceed national or statewide averages despite having significantly higher incomes and lower poverty than California or the nation as a whole.[41][42] Thematic maps[edit] Median Household Income by Census Block Group as of 2014[update]; the darker, the more affluent.[43] Percent of individuals falling below US Federal Poverty Line; the deeper the red, the higher the poverty rate.[43] Concentration of individuals above age 25 with a master's degree by Block Group Share of households with annual incomes of $150,000 or higher across census tracts in Salinas.[44] Map of income distribution in Salinas.[45] Data by area[edit] Income, poverty and education for all neighborhoods within Salinas city limits (2008 – 2012 5-year average)[12][41][42][46] Census Tract Area / Neighborhood Median Household Income ($USD) Households earning over 200k/year (%) Poverty Rate (%) Homeownership Rate (%) High school graduate or higher (%) Bachelor's degree or higher (%) Graduate or professional degree (%) N/A United States 53,004 4.6% 14.9 65.5 85.7 28.5 10.6 N/A California 61,400 7.1% 15.3 56.0 81.0 30.5 11.1 N/A Salinas City 50,587 2.2 20.8 43.8 60.0 13.1 4.1 1.02 Harden Ranch (North-East) 77,688 3.0 11.6 63.1 69.6 19 2.9 1.03 Harden Ranch (North) 54,406 1.1 7.0 21.1 72.7 15.9 5.6 1.04 Creekbridge & Monte Vista Park (North-East) 84,632 7.0 11.0 82.3 79.7 19.7 2.1 2 North Salinas 58,401 2.1 16.1 48.3 54.2 4.2 0.6 3 North Salinas 55,345 0.0 15.8 54.8 66.1 12.5 1.2 4 North Salinas 40,449 1.8 24.9 28.4 57.1 8.2 2.1 5.01 Hebbron Heights/East Salinas 32,125 0.0 46.6 7.3 30.8 2.1 0.0 5.02 Laurel Heights/East Salinas 45,855 0.7 19.4 44.8 46.4 8.8 1.3 6 East Salinas 48,663 1.3 29.1 29.5 36.1 6.1 0.0 7.01 East Salinas 36,043 0.0 40.5 24.5 29.6 2.4 0.5 7.02 East Salinas 40,483 0.0 40.5 18.4 22.7 2.0 1.5 8 East Salinas 54,685 0.0 28.3 48.6 41.0 1.2 0.0 9 East Salinas 42,336 0.0 27.8 33.8 39.3 4.5 0.3 12 Maple Park (South-West) 60,347 9.9 15.4 53.8 87.1 28.1 7.9 13 Downtown 21,176 0.0 43.3 6.4 55.4 12.3 7.4 14 South Salinas 49,726 2.7 15.8 41.7 81.2 28.2 10.4 15 Los Olivos & Mission Park/South Salinas 72,426 3.2 15.0 40.2 93.6 25.6 9.2 16 South Salinas 61,635 1.8 16.6 57.5 86.5 24.9 9.2 17 South Salinas 51,797 2.9 14.3 46.1 66.2 16.2 8.2 18.01 Laurel Wood (West) 64,525 0.9 21.5 52.8 70.6 18.4 4.9 18.02 North Salinas 53,813 2.4 22.5 26.0 68.6 16.0 4.2 105.4 Santa Rita 50,808 2.1 15.1 39.0 75.2 11.2 2.7 105.5 Bolsa Knolls 54,477 2.7 17.1 54.6 67.5 9.4 3.1 106.3 Creekbridge (North-East) 81,605 7.2 3.9 72.9 81.6 27.0 11.0 106.4 Williams Ranch (North-East) 68,299 3.7 13.9 69.5 49.8 14.0 6.8 106.5 Williams Ranch (East) 61,786 2.1 10.3 57.5 49.7 8.0 0.9 106.6 Monte Bella & East Salinas 58,363 4.6 13.1 59.3 58.5 14.2 4.4 106.8 North Salinas 53,147 0.0 14.8 45.0 32.6 5.5 1.2 145 Monterey Park (South) 60,833 4.9 9.5 48.7 85.9 26.3 7.9 106.7 East Salinas 45,156 0.0 31.0 37.2 32.6 5.5 1.2 Note: Census tract 9800 omitted from the table above.

The homeowner vacancy rate was 2.5%; the rental vacancy rate was 4.6%. 65,108 people (43.3% of the population) lived in owner-occupied housing units and 82,868 people (55.1%) lived in rental housing units. 2000[edit] The 2000 United States Census reported that Salinas had a population of 151,060. The population density was 7,948.4 per square mile (3,068.1/km²). There were 39,659 housing units at an average density of 2,086.8 per square mile (805.5/km²). The racial makeup of the city was 65.2% Hispanic or Latino of any race, 49.1% White, 6.2% Asian American, 3.3% African American, 1.3% Native American, 38.7% from other races, and 5.1% from two or more races. 49.2% have children under the age of 18 living with them, 57.6% were married couples living together, 14.8% had a female householder with no husband present, and 21.6% were non-families. 17.1% of all households were made up of individuals and 6.5% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older.

The median age was 28 years. For every 100 females there were 117.7 males. For every 102 females age 18 and over, there were 117.4 males. The median household income was $43,728, and the median family income was $44,669. Males had a median income of $35,641 versus $27,013 for females. The per capita income for the city was $14,495. About 12.8% of families and 16.7% of the population were below the poverty line, including 20.1% of those under age 18 and 9.4% of those age 65 or over. Median household income in the city tended to be significantly higher alongside the city limits, especially in the northern Harden Ranch and Creekbridge neighborhoods. East Salinas and the downtown area suffered from a very low median household income as well as high crime rates. South and North Salinas featured roughly the same level of median households income with the latter being home to city's wealthiest newly constructed neighborhoods.[45] Crime[edit] Salinas has long had a well-recognized, significant problem with organized street gangs, such as Nortenos and Surenos, and associated violent crime.[51][52] According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, the city's overall violent crime and homicide rates are above those for California and the nation overall. However, the violent crime rate in Salinas has declined by almost 24 percent since 2000.[53][54][55][56] Gang activity and violent crime are focused in the poorer parts of Central and East Salinas[57] and exacerbated by the city's comparatively low tax base and consequently limited policing resources.[51][58] A hypothesis to explain the city's particularly intense problem with gang related violent crime cites the city's proximity to Salinas Valley State Prison. The prison was an early launch pad for street operations of the notorious prison gang, Nuestra Familia.
