History & History Related Items

Tracy history:

When the Central Pacific Railroad (Southern Pacific) came through the area in 1869, a new town was established called Lathrop Junction. It was about nine miles from Stockton. It was mainly a railroad business town with hotels, a roundhouse, a shop and other related businesses. It quickly became the center for the railroad in the San Joaquin Valley. About fourteen miles west of Lathrop, at the base of Altamont Pass, a coaling station named Ellis was begun. It rapidly grew and by 1870 had many businesses for the railroad and the worker’s families. A new railroad line was begun in 1878 from Oakland and through Martinez to connect up to the Central Pacific Railroad near Ellis. The hope was to avoid the hills and the expenses of the helper engines to get the trains through the slopes. It was this new line that led to the establishment of Tracy on 8 September 1878. The new residents named the town for a railroad official, Lathrop J. Tracy. It wasn’t long before Ellis was shut down and all residents, businesses and buildings were moved to Lathrop and the new town of Tracy. They even moved two hotels that were in Ellis. Tracy maintained its prominence as a railroad center for the area during these years. In 1894, the railroad headquarters were moved from Lathrop to Tracy, including all equipment, buildings and engines. As the importance of the railroad declined in the 1950s, agriculture stepped up to fill the gap in the local economy.
