The City of Fairfield, located in California, Solano County California,  is located at the midpoint between the cities of San Francisco and Sacramento on Hwy 80. It is the home to Travis Air Force Base and the Jelly Belly jelly bean factory and the county seat of Solano County.

According to the City of Fairfield website, the earliest inhabitants of the Fairfield area were the Indians that settled in the Rockville and Green Valley areas. Artifacts uncovered in the area date back five to six thousand years and are some of the oldest traces of Indian settlements in Northern California.

The first European contact came in 1810 when the Spanish army was ordered to attack the Suisin Indians. In 1835 the Mexican General Vallejo was so magnanimous in victory over the Indian Chief Sem Yeto that the chief later became his ally in conflicts against other tribes.
 
In 1837 the Indian Chief Solano received the Rancho Suisun Mexican land grant. This grant eventually came into the hands of a clipper ship captain from Connecticut named Robert H. Waterman. He not only parceled out the town in 1856, but also, in a commercially shrewd move, arranged to have the county seat moved here in 1858 from Benicia. As an inducement he granted 16 acres (6.5 ha) of land for the construction of county buildings.
 
In 1903 Fairfield was incorporated as a city.
