Tulare History

The Town of Tulare was established in 1872. It was used by the Southern Pacific Railroad as its headquarters in the San Joaquin Valley. The town had to face a number of challenges in the initial years as it was burned down three times in the first fourteen years of its existence and had to be rebuilt each time. It was incorporated as a city in 1888. In 1891, the Southern Pacific Railroad shifted its headquarters to Bakersfield, forcing the residents to turn to agriculture for their survival. However, they faced the crisis bravely and emerged triumphantly. The area has flourished since then, with agriculture being its main industry.
