With a population of about 110,000 (2016) Fairfield ranks as the 60th largest city in California.
The city is named by a Clipper Captain after his hometown in Connecticut. The city's main economic stimulus comes from Travis Air Force Base, employing up to 15,000 people in recent years.
The Fairfield area was first settled, as far as we know, by the Ion culture dating back 5,000 years.
The first recorded Europeans reported to have settled in the area were Spanish infantry (1810). The Spanish militia were in pursuit of the Suisun Indians, wanting to kick their butt, or worse. Interestingly, after the Mexicans revolted against Spain, the Suisun Indians became close allies with their former foes. The Indians were given land grants, which later fell into the hands of Connecticut captain, Robert Waterman. This astute businessman parcelled out the Fairfield lands and won the bid for the county seat. In 1903 Fairfield was incorporated.
Today Fairfield's economy is almost entirely based on the public and military sectors. America should wake up because private industry is generally a miniscule part of local economies. As in, maybe you want to make your own clothes, manufacture your own computers and grow your own food? What a novel idea.

Weird Fairfield - Dixie the Dinosaur flies off from Fairfield to Benicia
If you wanted to sell cigarettes to the masses, how would you do it? Of course you would build a life sized Brachiosaurus dinosaur. And you'd name her Dixie the Dinosaur, would you not?
Dixie was born (built) near the I-80 in Dixon, California as a promotion for a cheap Cigarettes chain. She stood fifty feet tall and was seventy plus feet long from the tip of her tail to her nose. She weighed 15,000 pounds and cost $150,000 or more than one hundred thousand boxes of cigarettes. In 1996 the store was sold and Dixie was moved by helicopter to the company headquarters in Benicia. Although the company didn't a dinosaur permit, the city council nonetheless voted unanimously to allow her to make her home in town. Dixie became unofficially known now as Bennie the Dinosaur. - Source Weird California
The Jelly Belly Factory in Fairfield
"President Reagan was such a fan of the candy, that the Jelly Belly company made several portraits of our 40th President . . . out of different colored Jelly Belly beans."
Back when Ronald Reagan was governor of California, he had a love for jelly beans. And when he became the nation's 40th President, Jelly Belly jelly beans were served on Air Force One (a special holder was designed to keep the beans from spilling during turbulence), in the Oval Office and even at his 1981 presidential inauguration. The Blueberry flavor of Jelly Belly was created for the inauguration and over three tons of Jelly Belly beans were eaten at the event. The President even sent the candy into space by having them included on one of the space missions in 1983 aboard the space shuttle Challenger.
