Inspiration Statement: The years between 1920 and 1956 were characterized by growth, depression, war, and more growth. The industry of the area was primarily agricultural, including the growth of fruit and nut trees, vegetables, nursery products, dairying, and chickens. With the improvement of transportation and farming practices, the local economy thrived after the Great Depression (1929-1939) and WWII (1939-1945). By 1956, the year Fremont incorporated, the Nimitz Freeway was constructed and the new city was beginning to be built.
