In 1846, at the age of 19, pioneer Benjamin Campbell came out west with his dad and other family members. The Campbell headed out west with one of the largest wagon westward migrations (more than 2,000+ wagons). The Donner Party was part of the same wagon train.
In 1851, Campbell bought 150 acres of land, and planted wheat and hay fields. In 1869, he sold off 5 acres of his land to Southern Pacific Railroad. He then subdivided the rest of his ranch into small plots of land for sale. He and his wife Mary founded Campbell.
Once largely agricultural, Campbell’s slogan is “The Orchard City”.
Campbell is in the heart of Silicon Valley, in the West Valley area of Santa Clara County. Saratoga and Monte Sereno are to the west/south west, Los Gatos is to the south and San Jose to the north, east and south. Campbell is 6.35 square miles.
Campbell was founded in 1887, and incorporated in 1952.The 2021 population of Campbell is 43,250.
Campbell has a “small town” feel despite its Silicon Valley location. The site of the original water pumping plant in Downtown Campbell still has the Campbell Water Tower, a visible remnant of Campbell's “small town” history. Campbell's Downtown is full of beautiful houses and charming shops and restaurants. The sprawling Pruneyard Shopping Center is also located in Campbell.

Many injury accident cases get resolved without going to court.
Other cases have to be fought through the court.
In Campbell, injury accident cases get filed and handled in the Civil Division of the Santa Clara County Courts. In 1998, all Santa Clara County Trial Courts were unified to form the Santa Clara County Superior Court.
This happened because the voters approved a constitutional amendment letting Santa Clara County judges merge their superior and municipal courts. Before then, superior court and municipal court were separate.
Currently, Campbell auto accident and injury cases are heard in courts located in San Jose. Accident and injury cases are called civil cases, unless they happen at work. If they happen at work, they're called workers compensation.
