Fremont California was established in January 23, 1956 and was named after the former governor of Arizona John C. Fremont. Fremont is well known for historical discoveries and expeditions throughout California. The name ‘Fremont’ was chosen by former first city council Wally Pond. According to Pond picking out the name was not easy since it was between ‘Mission Valley’ and ‘Fremont’. The main reason why the name Fremont was picked up was because the majority of the towns had vote for it.
