Gridley History

Gridley was founded by George W. Gridley. Gridley made an attempt to drive sheep and cattle from Illinois to California. Although he failed and lost his animals, Gridley arrived safely and settled in the current Gridley area. Two years later he returned to Illinois only to set out for California once more. This time Gridley made it with around 600 sheep. He finally settled in Gridley and built a bungalow, covering 960 acres. With the completion of the Central Pacific Railroad track in 1870, Gridley witnessed a robust development.
