Before being founded in 1887, the area which is now Seaside was considered “East Monterey” and was started as an outgrowth of the Hotel Del Monte and served as a tourist destination. In 1887 Dr. John Roberts purchased 160 acres David Jacks and by 1888 Roberts had divided the land into 1000 parcels to sell to the well to do tourists who came to visit the beautiful Monterey Peninsula.
In 1910, Roberts, now a county supervisor, successfully lobbied President Theodore Roosevelt to locate Ford Ord in Seaside. This changed Seaside from a tourist town full of middle class into a military town. By 1914, Fort Ord drove the economy in Seaside evidenced by the quote in the Seaside News-Graphic claiming “The biggest breadbasket the Peninsula has ever had is Fort Ord…and we in Seaside are the nearest to the head of the table where the bread is coming from.” As a military town, Seaside grew into a center of diversity and became known as a forward thinking model of political inclusion during the civil rights era.
Fort Ord was shuttered in 1994 and the city of Seaside has had the opportunity to grow and evolve since then.
