Originally called Mayhew's Crossing and Hangtown Crossing during the Gold Rush era, the area was renamed Mayhew Station and Mills Station (circa 1900). the original names of the town included Cordova Vineyards and Cordova Village, before it was officially named Rancho Cordova when a post office was established in the community in 1955. For many years, Rancho Cordova was the Community called Mills, located in the eastern part of the Brighton Township. It was called 'Mills' as early as 1893, supposedly because of the old grist mills that were close by along the river. Tom Raley bought Mills Station in 1956. The Raley's organization believes he ran the grocery store. Most of the residents of the '50's and '60's came to work at either Aerojet, during the height of the space race, or were stationed at Mather Air Force Base. Now Rancho Cordova continues to grow south in areas like Zinfandel Village, Stone Creek and Anatolia.
