History & History Related Items

Turlock history:

John William Mitchell is known as the founder of Turlock. He was a farmer here when he founded the city in 1871. When the railroad came through, they wanted to name the new station after Mitchell. He declined the offer but did suggest naming it after Turlough in Ireland. They accepted his suggestion and the name became Turlock. Sierra was also a possible name for Turlock, but confusion with other nearby areas with the same name squashed that choice.

Agriculture rapidly became the main force in the local economy and it remains such today. The city was incorporated in 1908. Early settlers came from many cultural groups giving much diversity to both the economy and the community life. California State University - Stanislaus opened here in 1960 bringing with it more opportunity for growth and development.
