Description

San Lorenzo is known as San Lorenzo Village and is a census-designated place in the Alameda County of Noorthern California. San Lorenzo is located on the route of El Camino Viejo on the land of the former Rancho San Lorenzo a Mexican land grant given to Guillermo Castro in 1841.

Early residents during the California Gold Rush era lived here as squatters on the Rancho San Lorenzo, and the informal name given to the area was Squattersville and the wagon shop was an essential part of the community.

The first post office opened in San Lorenzo in 1854.
