Soledad was first established as a mission in 1791 under the Viceroyalty of New Spain, a Spanish-run government that ruled from 1535 to 1821. Its name refers to the Virgin Mary, the patron saint of Catholics. In 1869, the town had a post office and only a few buildings. By 1886, the Munras family began selling lots of land in the town. The Southern Pacific Railroad started serving the city in the late 1880s.

The city's farmers are an important part of its economic life. The city's prime farmland has the best physical and chemical conditions for farming. The city is planning for the future by considering how urban sprawl will impact the agricultural sector. Agricultural businesses in the area include Taylor Farms, Tanimura & Antle Fresh Foods, Mann Packing Inc., and Braga Farms.

There are a number of reasons why the city should expand its downtown. For example, the city could host a Wal-Mart supercenter containing 215,000 square feet of retail space. This would be more than enough space to accommodate up to 30 retailers and a few restaurants. That would elevate Soledad's downtown to a big box hub in the central region. But some residents think it should be kept small.
