History & History Related Items

Coachella history:

The Southern Pacific Railroad came here in 1876 and named the area Woodspur. The name came about around 1901 when residents voted to accept Coachella as the new name for the community. The origin of the name is not really known though some thoughts on the subject have it the misspelling of Conchilla, the Spanish word for small white snail shells that were found there. The city was incorporated in 1946 and it wasn’t until after that time that real expansion began to take place. The area includes many farms and fruit groves, including citrus and date palms.
