Los Banos History

Gabriel Moraga, with his troop of Spanish Calvary from the Presidio of San Francisco, came to explore the San Joaquin Valley in 1805 under orders from the Spanish Governor of California. He discovered the City of Los Banos. The region was inhabited by local Native Americans. The next Spanish explorer to come here was Padre Felipe Arroyo de la Cuesta. Henry Miller came to San Joaquin Valley around 1850 and by 1871 he formed the San Joaquin and Kings River Canal and Irrigation Company. Miller made a great effort to get the railroad extended through the West Side and that ultimately decided the location of Los Banos. Agriculture still remains the number one industry in and around Los Banos, mainly due to the early success of Henry Miller.
