The land in modern-day Milpitas was divided between the 6,353-acre (25.71 km) Rancho Los Tularcitos (Spanish for "little tule marshes") granted to José Higuera.At the north side of the intersection of that road with the Milpitas-Alviso Road, for many years stood "French's Hotel" that had been originally built by Alex Anderson prior to 1859, when Alfred French bought it from Austin M. South of the site of French's Hotel, was a saloon dating from at least 1856 when Agustus Rathbone purchased the land and "improvements" from Richard Greenham.The first murder in Milpitas was committed in the early 1860s in "Rathbone's Saloon" (alas, the murderer escaped).Many of the Azoreans had such locally well-known surnames like Coelho, Covo, Mattos, Nunes, Spangler, Serpa, and Silva. A local farmer and first Assistant Postmaster, Joseph Weller, felt the Spanish word Penitencia might be confused with the English word "penitentiary." Instead of choosing Penitencia, he suggested another popular name for the area, Milpitas, after the name of Alviso's property, Rancho Milpitas.Thus was born "Milpitas Township." For over a century, Milpitas served as a popular rest stop for travelers on the old Oakland−San Jose Highway.Both landowners had built prominent adobe homes on their properties.
Today, both adobes still exist and are the oldest structures in Milpitas.
