Chowchilla history:

Chowchilla was named for the Chowchilla Indians who lived in the area. Apparently, the tribe was known for bravery in the area.
Mr. Orlando Alison Robertson purchased the land for Chowchilla in May 1912. He planned to sell half of it to farmers. The northeast corner was for the townsite and he set about mapping the area. Streets were laid out and buildings were erected. Railroad lines were even laid to help the settlers. For additional history, see the website below.
