— Fruitvale History Tour Site —

The California Cotton Mill was one of Oakland's earliest and largest industries.
Jingletown was named for the mill workers' habit of jingling coins in their pockets on payday.
At its height, the mill had 600 to 700 employees and 20 to 30 buildings. I closed in 1956.
