Patterson history:

The name of the local newspaper is "The Patterson Irrigator", a name that honors the reason that the town exists - irrigation. If you have ever eaten any of the major brands of frozen vegetables and vegetable mixes, then you most likely have eaten food grown in this area and processed by the major local employer, Patterson Frozen Foods.

The land for the area which is now Patterson changed hands several times over the years, but was finally sold to John D. Patterson on August 14, 1866. He later bought more land here. He died on 7 March 1902 and the land went to his heirs. It was sold to the Patterson Ranch Company in 1908 whereupon Thomas W. Patterson subdivided the land and plotted the town of Patterson. He modeled the town after Washington, D. C. and Paris, France using circles and radiating streets. Many and varied types of trees were also planted. The platt was recorded on 13 December 1909 with Stanislaus County.
