The city was founded in 1870 by the efforts of one of the bankers and financiers involved in the development of the Central Pacific Railroad, by the name of William C Ralston. However, the reason the city was named Modesto is up for speculation, but one of the main elements of this is that Ralston did not want the city to bear his name. The town was incorporated in 1854 and originally was home to approximately 1000 inhabitants. The majority of these inhabitants were involved with agriculture, especially the grains fields that surrounding this rail stop.
Before the railway lines were laid, the area was connected by grain barges that would sail up the river when it was flooded to collect the grain. Once the railway lines were complete between Sacramento and Los Angeles, the city began its growth in earnest. At the time wheat was the primary crop of the area and as the Civil War began to heat up, the areas crop was in high demand and expanded to include barley and other grains.
