Madera history:

Rather than a railroad or gold town, Madera began in 1876 when the California Lumber Company laid out a new town where its now famous lumber flume intersected with the railroad. The name given was Madera, the Spanish word for lumber. The newly created lots began to sell and the town began to grow rapidly. Businesses were started and many buildings were erected. It wasn't long before a school was started as well as a church. The city became the county seat of the new Madera County in 1896 and construction began on the new courthouse.

Incorporation came on 27 March 1907 with growth continuing.
