Bernal Heights was once part of a 4446-acre land grant given to José Cornelio de Bernal, a grandson of a soldier in Juan Bautista de Anza’s 1776 expedition (see Hike 29). The grant extended from present-day Cesar Chavez Street to Daly City. In the mid-nineteenth century, Irish, Scottish, and Scandinavian immigrants moved into the neighborhood, and Bernal Hill was used for cattle ranching and dairy farming.
