The Giant Powder Company was the first company in America to produce dynamite. The Giant Powder Company moved to Point Pinole around San Francisco in 1892 and set up the company town of Giant, along with its plant to produce explosives used throughout the world in major earth moving efforts. Since 1960, when the company left, the company town became part of a residential development, and mother nature has taken over the rest. All that remains are some in-cognito, blast-protecting concrete bunkers.
