Named in honor of Antonio Maria Sunol, merchant, naval man and cattlebarron, who acquired a Spanish / Mexican land grant in 1840.

Along with the vast ranching and fertile farmlands, coal and gold were found in the Sunol area in the 1870's.

Sunol became a typical western cattletown with the arrival of the railroad in 1869, and a favorite hangout for banditos.It was rumored that when Joaquin Murrieta stayed here his horse stood on a bed of charcoal keeping the hooves warm for a quick get-away.
