History & History Related Items

Gustine history:

The Southern Pacific railroad came through in 1844 and is responsible for the naming of Gustine. They had a part of their line known as the Cottonwood Switch and the name of Gustine was given by the railroad. The name was chosen for Sarah Alice Miller, whose nickname was Gussie. She was the daughter of Henry Miller, a large landowner here. When the New Era Creamery wanted to purchase land for a new creamery here, they asked Henry Miller to sell them the land. As part of the negotiations, it was noted that it might be a good place for a new settlement so the land was surveyed. The land was surveyed and on 14 Nov 1906, the map of Gustine was recorded at the county seat.
