Throughout the 1940’s into much of the 1960’s Mountain View was largely agricultural and home to expansive orchards and strawberry fields. Originally a stopping ground for travelers en route to San Francisco, the pioneering of this community eventually led to the establishment of the railroad along historic El Camino Real.
