Redwood City, California, has a similar history to all of its neighbors, with the earliest recorded inhabitants being the Ohlone peoples who were one of the numerous tribes comprising those who practiced the Kuksu religion in California. After switching hands a couple of times, the land now known as present-day Redwood City became the focus of a heated legal dispute between the Arguello family and the United States government after Mexico conceded California to the government after the Mexican-American War. Nonetheless, their attorney did a good job, so rather than losing the entire Rancho de las Pulgas land claim, they were allowed to purchase a part of the land back, which eventually became Redwood City. Today, Redwood City is the chosen location of several of America's most prominent technology companies that include Informatica, Oracle, Box, Evernote, Electronic Arts, and Wealthfront.
