HOW BAKERSFIELD GOT ITS NAME
Among those attracted to the area by the California gold rush was Thomas Baker. A lawyer and former colonel in the militia of Ohio, his home state. Thomas Baker settled near the banks of the Kern River in 1863 at what became known as Baker’s Field. By 1870, with a population of 600, what is now known as Bakersfield was becoming the principal town in Kern County.
Bakersfield has long been known as a stopover for those traveling between Los Angeles and San Francisco. People who considered putting down roots in the area found a healthy job market and an affordable place to raise a family. In fact, it’s Bakersfield’s strong sense of community and family and its booming oil and agriculture industries that keeps the region thriving.
In some ways, Bakersfield feels like Texas: Oil rigs dot the horizon, and honky-tonks are easy to come by. The metro area’s location in the fertile San Joaquin Valley has instilled in residents the love of fresh, locally sourced foods, which is at the heart of California culture.
Here in Bakersfield, CA. you will find plenty of activities.
