Early settlers planted orchards and vineyards in Novato. By the 1930s, many farmers lost their land due to the Great Depression. However, after World War II, Novato grew rapidly with the construction of tract homes and a freeway. As the area was unincorporated much of the growth was unplanned and uncontrolled. Novato was incorporated as a city in 1960. The former Hamilton Air Force Base, located in Novato, was decommissioned in 1974 and designated a Historic District in 1998. After lying stagnant for many years, the base has largely been redeveloped into single family homes. The former hangar buildings were gutted and redeveloped into two story office buildings.
