Real Estate In Soquel

Location

Soquel is a census-designated place (CDP) in Santa Cruz County, California, United States. The population was 9,644 at the 2010 census.

History

The name Soquel has a somewhat unknown history. One local tale of its name comes from a story in which a bartender yells, “Soak Hell” at a patron. Another says the name comes from a local Native American tribe called the Soquel Indians. The Mexican land grant Rancho Soquel was given Martina Castro in 1833.

The town of Soquel is notorious for its flooding. The lowlands in and around the Soquel Creek have flooded many times. The most recent flood was in January 1982, and it nearly topped its banks in 1986. Uncleared log jams downstream in the city of Capitola have been blamed for the flooding. Capitola City Planner Richard Steele implemented a debris removal program after the near flooding in 1986.
