Manteca History

In 1861, Joshua Cowell founded the city of Manteca. Initially, it consisted of houses on the corner of what is now known as Main and Yosemite. The year 1873 saw the construction of the Central Pacific Railroad track directly through the city of Manteca. The name of the city originally suggested was 'Cowell,' but since another town of the same name already existed, and the name 'Monteca' was decided upon. This was however misspelt, and that is how the town came to be called 'Manteca,' which is actually Spanish for 'lard.' The city was incorporated in 1918, and Cowell was the first mayor.
