Ceres Mesothelioma


Ceres is a city located in Stanislaus County, California.  It is located in the central region of the San Joaquin Valley and its northern border is the Tuolumne River.  According to the 2022 Census Data, Ceres has 49,279 residents.  Ceres was founded in the late 1800s, but not incorporated as a city until February 25, 1918. 



The Yokuts people occupied the land in the central San Joaquin Valley, including up into the foothills.  The Yokuts are sometimes divided into the Southern Valley Yokuts, the Northern Valley Yokuts, and the Foothill Yokuts.  There are 40 or 50 tribes identified as Yokuts. The Yokuts had large villages, and their diet consisted of seeds, acorns, small game and fish from the San Joaquin Valley.

The California Gold Rush forced the native populations off of their lands. Numerous miners settled in the valley and eventually transformed the land and waterways of the valley. Some Yokuts worked on farms and ranches or were relocated to reservations. Also, many Native American people were decimated by disease and armed conflict with the settlers and military.

Ceres was named for the Roman goddess of agriculture.  Daniel C. Whitmore, who lived from 1816 to 1893, is credited with founding Ceres. The first township map was filed on Feb. 20, 1875, and generically named the streets in the new town as, First, Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Streets. North Street was north of town.  John Service and Cassius Warner are also recognized as early founders of Ceres.  In 1870, Daniel Whitmore built the first house in Ceres.  The Whitmore home has been preserved and is located at 2928 Fifth Street in Ceres. 

In the 1850s, dry farming, a wheat farming technique was utilized in the Ceres area. At that time. wheat was the prominent crop grown in the Ceres area. After a severe drought in the 1880s, the Modesto and Turlock Irrigation District (TID) was formed in 1887, to bring a reliable irrigation system to the land situated between the Tuolumne, Merced and San Joaquin rivers. The project was successful and the crops in Ceres expanded to figs, olives, peaches, pears, apricots, berries, grapes, beans, melons and wheat.  Ceres became one of the Central Valley’s most diverse agricultural area.

Ceres, a small agricultural town in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley, is home to many farms and orchards.  Ceres has eleven parks for public use and a welcoming downtown area full of shops and restaurants.  Ceres is 79 miles from Sacramento and 95 miles from the San Francisco Bay Area.  Ceres has a diverse population with 61 percent Hispanic/Latino, 24 percent non-Hispanic white and 7 percent Asian.  Ceres is also, known for its many festivals and events, including the Ceres Street Faire, Concert in the Park, Halloween Fun Festival and the Ceres Flea Market.
