Reedley History

During the Gold Rush period of the mid 1800s, Thomas Law Reed came to the area to supply wheat to the miners. When he gave the land necessary for the construction of a railroad station, the town was born. The new settlement was named Reedley after him. As the gold fever minimized, the requirement for wheat became great. Irrigation bringing water from the Kings River helped the area establish itself as a flourishing region for fruit and vineyards. New settlers began to arrive and Reedley was finally incorporated in the year 1913.
