Modesto is the county seat and largest city of Stanislaus County, California, United States.  There are over 218,000 residents according to the 2020 census.  The Yokut tribe are indigenous to the area. The city of Modesto was founded in 1870  and is located along the shores of the Tuolumne River.  Famed Hollywood director and producer George Lucas grew up in Modesto, and his film American Graffiti, reflects growing up in this Central Valley town.   The film starred Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss, and Harrison Ford.  Modesto’s motto is “Water Wealth Contentment Health”.



Modesto began as one of the San Joaquin Valley’s railroad towns.  Land was purchased, subdivided and sold.  The town people wanted to name the town Ralston, after William Chapman Ralston, a San Francisco businessman and founder of the Bank of California, who played a large role in the development of the town but he asked that they choose something else.  The town became known as Modesto, which is Spanish for “modest.” 

Modesto is a shipping and supply hub for the region. Agricultural has always been important to Modesto.  During World War II, the area provided canned goods, powdered milk, and eggs to the US armed forces.  Today, Modesto’s main farm products are almonds, milk, walnuts and chickens.   Reflecting the importance of tree nuts to the local economy, the Modesto Minor League Baseball team is named the Modesto Nuts.  Modesto is also home to the  largest winery in the world- the E & J Gallo Winery, which was founded after the repeal of prohibition in 1933. The Gallo Glass Company is the largest wine bottle manufacturing company in the world. These companies  provide thousands of manufacturing and administrative jobs to Modesto and to Stanislaus County residents.

Modesto is also home to Modesto Junior College and the McHenry Museum, which houses Native American memorabilia and architectural exhibits.
