Blackhawk Ranch was built up in 1917 by Ansel Mills Easton and his child in-law William Q. Ward, in a region east of the San Ramon and Sycamore Valleys. The name originated from an acclaimed Irish racehorse named Blackhawk that Easton's family had once possessed. The land went through the hands of a few proprietors, including Raymond Force (the proprietor of the Caterpillar Tractor Company), the Hawaii-based sugar and pineapple company Castle and Cooke and Howard Peterson (proprietor of Peterson Tractor).
In 1975, Peterson sold the land to Florida developer Ken Behring, who arranged a lodging improvement of 4800 dwelling units more than 4200 sections of land (17 km²) of land. Pundits charged that the arrangement would have different negative effects, related to urban spread, ecological harm and infringement of the County General Plan. A gathering of tree huggers and neighborhood occupants called Amigos de Diablo sorted out against the Blackhawk Development Corporation, yet were sued for libel. The Blackhawk Development Corporation at last decreased the quantity of homes wanted to 2400 and offered in excess of 2000 sections of land (8 km²) of open space to Mount Diablo State Park.
Blackhawk is divided into seven individual gated communities scattered along Blackhawk Road, connected by a 3-mile (4.8 km) long jogging trail.
- Hidden Oaks consists of 206 homes and in 1978 was the first Blackhawk community to be completed. Most homes are on half-acre lots.
- Oakridge consists of medium-sized homes ranging from 2000 to 3,000 square feet (280 m2), though a few large estates reside on the top of a private court.
- Saddleback, the second community completed, is home to some of the most lavish homes in the entire Blackhawk development, most lots being no less than 5 acres (20,000 m2) in size.
- Silveroak is an upscale condo complex.
- Silver Maple is designed around one of the main Blackhawk Country Clubs's golf holes, though no roads connect it to the rest of the main Blackhawk Country Club. It consists of approximately 110 custom homes between 2500-5000 Square Feet.
- Blackhawk Country Club ("Main Gates") is the largest of the six communities.
In addition to Blackhawk, there are also numerous surrounding communities, including Alamo Creek, Bettencourt Ranch, Northridge and Monterosso.
