Benicia is a waterside city in Solano County. It is the first city in California to be founded by Anglo-Americans and served as the state capital for 13 months from 1853-1854. It is located along the northern banks of Carquinez Strait.
Across the strait northeast of the town’s residential areas is an oil refinery built in 1969 by Humble Oil which later became Exxon. The refinery was later bought by Valero Energy.
