Suisan City is a small town located in the Solano County of the city. The town gets its name from the Suisan Bay which is located adjacent to it. It is named after the Suisan people, who were a Native-American tribe that lived in the area. The Suisun City has a total area of over 4.2 square miles and lies adjacent to the Suisan Marsh, which is the largest contiguous estuarine marsh remaining on the west side of North America. The town experiences a warm-summer Mediterranean climate. The population of the town is diverse and includes African Americans, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, Asians, and other races. A majority of the population here lives in households.
Established in the 1850s, Suisun City’s favorable location provided opportunities for transport and commerce during the California Gold Rush. The town experienced massive growth as the San Francisco Bay Area’s suburban circle expanded to the previously rural Solano County. In the 1960s the Interstate 80 was contrasted, which helped effectively move the commercial traffic from the town’s railway and water conveyance. The schools in both the Suisan City and Fairfield are run by the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District.
