Established in the early 1850's by Captain Robert Waterman and named for his wife, Cordelia. The name was changed to Bridgeport after his home in Connecticut and then again to Cordelia. Intended as a major townsite to serve the shipping trade on the Suisun Marsh, it was used primarily for shipping cobblestones to San Francisco from the local rock quarry, Cordelia's largest industry. In the towns prime it contained three hotels, several general stores and other commercial establishments which served local farmers as well as shippers. Cordelia is the second oldest town in Solano County.
