Incorporated in 1914, Firebaugh has grown from a “sheep shearing station and ferry crossing,” to a small agriculture based city. Before the railroad, the San Joaquin River was the major thoroughfare to upstream communities. The ferry was the major crossing for prospectors heading for gold country.
Ferries were the only way to cross the river until the late 1800’s when the first bridges were built. The San Joaquin River played a major role in settling of the valley and Firebaugh is one of the oldest historical towns on the Westside.
