Buy Gold and Silver in Santa Maria, California

The populous city of Santa Maria is located in Santa Barbara County, about 120 miles northwest of the city of Los Angeles. It is renowned for its wine industry and barbecue, which is claimed to be the finest in the west. For thousands of years prior to European settlement, the Chumash people lived in Santa Maria Valley. In 1769 Spanish explorers traveled through this valley while on their Portola Expedition. They founded Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa which was located just north of Santa Maria Valley and near Lompoc started Mission La Purisma. The lands did not become available for private ownership until 1821, after the Mexican War of Independence ended. During the late 19th century, numerous farmers came to Santa Maria in order to take advantage of the area's fertile, rich soil. To this day, agriculture is still an important local industry. In 1875 the city obtained official status and was called Grangerville. Later it was called Central City, before it was named Santa Maria so that it wouldn't be confused with Central City, Colorado. At the beginning of the 20th century, it was discovered that the area contained large scale oil wells. By 1957, Santa Maria Valley had 1,775 oil wells producing over $640 million in oil. The strong economy in Santa Maria has resulted in many locals investing in silver and gold. Lear Capital can guide you to the best bullion dealers and coin shops in the Santa Maria area.
