Though Scotts Valley only became a city in 1966, the man who gave the valley its name—Hiram Daniel Scott—got there in 1850, when he purchased Rancho San Agustin, a Mexican land grant. Since then the land has been mined for peat moss, sand and gravel; now it’s more valuable as residential and commercial real estate. The valley also cultivated its share of tech startups, including such familiar names as Seagate, Borland, and Netflix.
