about this item

Traveling from Galena, Illinois, George Washington Gridley was 32 years old when he first gazed upon a broad verdant valley in California in 1850. He looked northward from the top of the buttes and knew at once that he had found his future home. Gridley settled four miles north of the buttes and began to establish the agricultural empire that was to become his monument. In partnership with the California & Oregon Railroad, Gridley requested the railroad consider building a station at the tracks for farmers and ranchers to ship their livestock and produce. The town of Gridley was established with the building of the train station, along with an added park area donated by the railroad.
