First Time Coming to National City, California – Did You Know?
The Kumeyaay, or Tipai-Ipai, lived peacefully in the San Diego region for thousands of years, and were skilled hunters and innovative agriculturists. Kumeyaay’s ancestral territory ranges east to El Centro, north to Escondido, and south to Baja California. Some of their rich cultural identity and traditions in are still practiced and honored today. The arrival of the European soldiers and missionaries began the destruction of their way of life in 1542. By the late 18th century, the Spaniards had truly imprinted the Kumeyaay’s territory, bringing in non-native, invasive flora and horses, cattle and other domesticated animals that brought degradation to the local ecology.
At first, the region’s 26,000 acres of land was named El Rancho del Rey (the Ranch of the King) by the Spanish, who soldiers used it to graze horses. The Mexican government renamed it Rancho de la Nacion (Ranch of the Nation) after independence from Spain in 1810. But later when President Andrew Johnson issued the land patent, he simply listed the name as “The National Ranch”. National City is the English translation of “Rancho de la Nacion”. In 1868, Frank Kimball and brothers, Warren and Levi, bought the land. They built roads and brought the railroad to what is now called National City.
In January 2012, the National City Chamber of Commerce and National City lodging businesses formed the National City Tourism Marketing District as a benefit assessment district to help promote tourism by funding marketing and sales promotion efforts for city lodging businesses. One of their goals is to market National City as a tourist, meeting and event destination.
Since the 1980s and 1990s, crime has dropped, but National City still has notable gang and drug activity, and consistently leads San Diego County in violent crime. In 2008, National City went a year without a homicide for the first time since 1963, yet led San Diego County in violent crime with a rate of 6.1 per 1,000 people.
In 2006, former Mayor Nick Inzunza declared National City an immigrant sanctuary in a speech delivered to immigrant rights activists at City Hall. The proclamation divided the city between the federal and state regulations and the stance of the ex-mayor on the matter. In November of 2006, Ron Morrison was elected mayor of National City, and when asked if the city will continue to be a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants responded, “Absolutely not”.

National City, California, has roots that go back into the 1800s. The second oldest city in California, National City was first inhabited by the Kumeyaay people. Located on the coast, the city soon became an import/export area, and one of the lasting impressions were the trees that were brought to the city from Asia and Europe. Before the addition of these trees, the area was mostly covered with shrubs that could handle the high temperatures and lack of rain.
