Members of the Chumash tribe were some of the earliest inhabitants of the San Luis Obispo area. The area is situated on an estuary and this provided the Chumash with opportunistic fishing along the Central Coast and areas close by.
The Europeans arrived in the late 1700s led by Fr. Junipero Serra who was commissioned by the King of Spain to evangelize the area and to adopt Catholicism. At that time the lands were diversely populated and there were numerous religions in the area. The idea, and strategy, by the Spanish monarch, was to united the people and bring them under one kingdom.
After much hardship, Fr. Jose Cavalier, along with a number of natives who were converted, built the first mission church in what was at that time named Valley of the Bears. The name was given due to the large number of bears that roamed the area and where the Spanish would hunt for bear meat to be supplied to the northern missions. The church that was built here, near San Luis Creek, eventually became San Luis Obispo. Unlike the missionaries up north, this area had an abundance of water and game. It was also pleasant from the perspective of weather.
