Originally part of Mexico, Orangevale was part of the Ranchero San Juan Mexican land grant. These land grants were given to reward solders and to encourage Mexican agriculture. In 1837, the Mexican governor Manuel Micheltorena originally gave 19,000 acres of Mexican land to Joel P. Dedmond, an American carpenter who pretended to be a Mexican citizen. At the end of the Mexican-American war, when California became a state, the people were allowed to keep their land grants. Then the Orangevale area changed hands many times over the years until it became today’s community of Orangevale. Discover facts aboutLoomis, CA: The Eggplant Festival.
