1874-02-12: San Benito County Created from Monterey County

February 12, 1874: "On February 12, 1874 Governor Newton Booth signed a bill creating a new county from part of Monterey county and named it after the valley.  The county seat was established 7 miles east of San Juan Bautista in the rapidly growing town of Hollister."

"The county population grew so quickly that 13 years later the State Legislature expanded the county boundaries and parts of Merced and Fresno counties were incorporated into it. The boundaries have remained unchanged since 1887."
