The fourth-largest city in Monterey County and the setting for the novel Of Mice and Men, Soledad followed the same trajectory as many locales in Steinbeck Country. First came the missionaries, then the ranchers, the wheat farmers, and the dairy workers. In 1921, when the City of Soledad incorporated, the latest thing was row crops—until the 1940s, when the California Department of Corrections built the Soledad Training Facility. That sector of the economy expanded in 1996 with the creation of the Salinas Valley State Prison. But with the presence of such companies as Dole Fresh Vegetables and Taylor Farms, agriculture is still going strong.
The five-member Soledad City Council is made up of four councilmembers and a mayor, all of whom are elected at large. Meetings take place the first Wednesday of the month and are open to the public.
