Tracy began as an agricultural community centered on several rail lines, and eventually became the San Joaquin Valley headquarters for the Central Pacific Railroad. The City was incorporated in 1910 and grew rapidly after the first irrigation district was established in 1915. Towards the latter part of the 20th century, the City transitioned into a primarily residential community, as more people arrived from the Bay Area seeking affordable housing, a small-town feel, and a respite from the highly-urbanized San Francisco region.
