El Cerrito CA calls itself a “City of Homes”, which is a reflection of its family-oriented, residential character. Many homes in El Cerrito were built during the 1920s, ‘30s, and ‘40s. In the 1950s, the post-war building boom brought mid-century modern architecture to El Cerrito with a mix of sleek contemporary and comfortable California ranch-style homes.
