In 1856, San Leandro became the administrative seat of Alameda County. In 1868, however, the administration building was destroyed by an earthquake. The administrative seat was therefore moved to neighboring Brooklyn, now a borough of Oakland, in 1872, so that today Oakland is the seat of the county.
