Patrick Rodgers left Ireland for America C. 1843 at the age of 10, without his family. In 1855, he arrived in California for the Gold Rush. In 1868, he and his wife, Mary Ann, bought this 149-acre site to grow wheat. The Rodgers, along with eight other families, became Pleasant Hill's first pioneers. In the late 1800's, during the "Second California Gold Rush" (the highest U.S. production of wheat ever recorded), Rodgers Ranch became a successful "household farm," outlasting the much larger "bonanza farms." Patrick died in 1891 and Mary Ann in 1893. Both are buried at St. Catherine's cemetery in Martinez, California.
