After Mexico became independent from Spain, the Daly City area was part of a large land grant named the Rancho Cañada de Guadalupe la Visitación y Rodeo Viejo. Unsuccessful gold seekers and immigrants later took up residence in the area following the Mexican-American War, trying to make a living by crop farming. One of these early settlers was John Daly, a dairy farmer who acquired a 250-acre ranch at the Top of the Hill area in 1868. He established a very successful business, the San Mateo Dairy, and became an early political leader and philanthropist. After the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, the area’s population surged and Daly divided his ranch into housing tracts. Residents responded by naming the city in his honor when it incorporated. Another population boom occurred in the late 1940s with the development of the Westlake district of homes and businesses. Notable Daly City landmarks include the Cow Palace arena, Seton Medical Center and San Bruno Mountain.
