History & History Related Items

Tulare history:

Founded in 1872 by the Southern Pacific Railroad, Tulare flourished as the headquarters of the railroad in the area. The name is for an area where tule (or cattails) grew. Since the town has expanded, the area no longer exists. The town suffered through many hard times, though, burning down and being rebuilt three times in its first fourteen years of existence. It was finally incorporated in 1888. In 1891, the railroad moved its headquarters to Bakersfield, devastating the community. When the railroad left, Tulare didn't give up and turned to agriculture to exist. Once adequate water was developed, Tulare once again flourished becoming a center for farming and other growing things.

Tulare is pronounced - too LARRY.
The incorporation date of Tulare: 5 April 1888
