Although his father had purchased the land that is modern-day Orinda in 1897, Edward Ignacio de Laveaga didn’t establish the town until the early 1920s.
The opening of the Caldecott Tunnel in 1937 brought unprecedented access to Oakland and San Francisco. Over the years, Orinda would enjoy steady but gentle growth as one of the most desirable places to live outside of the City.
