Chowchilla is rich in historical sites, once home to the Chowchilla Indians who lived along the several channels of the Chowchilla River in the plains region of Central California. From what is known the tribe may have well been very populous and were a warlike one and the name Chowchilla was a byword for bravery to the southernmost end of Yokuts territory in the southern end of the San Joaquin Valley.
In February of 1923 the City of Chowchilla was incorporated as a city of the sixth class and has grown to what it is today, a thriving agricultural and manufacturing community whose crops make it a part of the backbone of the economy of our state. Chowchilla currently has grown to a population of approximately 15,000.
