Cordelia is an unincorporated community in Solano County, California, United States. Cordelia is located at the junction of Interstate 80 and California State Route 12 and at the northern end of Interstate 680, 7 miles (11 km) west of Fairfield.
Cordelia was founded in 1853 by clipper ship captain Robert H. Waterman, and the community was initially named "Bridgeport", named after the town Bridgeport in Connecticut. Around 1869, a post office was established, and the United States Post Office Department declared that a more unique name for the town should be chosen. Waterman then named the town "Cordelia", after the first name of his wife.
