About 17 miles south of Fresno, Selma, California is an agricultural community in the state’s Central Valley. As miners and settlers flooded into California after gold was discovered near Sacramento in 1848, transportation routes sprang up throughout the state. Fresno County was founded in 1856 and it wasn’t long before the Central Pacific Railroad established passenger and freight stations throughout the Central Valley from Sacramento to Bakersfield and on to Los Angeles. The new town, named after Selma Michelsen, the wife of a railroad employee, grew up around one of those depots with the first train passing through in 1872. Farmers naturally congregated to the place and were soon harvesting wheat in the Central Valley’s fertile soil. By 1880 the town had a grain warehouse, general store, hotel and post office. Unfortunately, overproduction of the soil began to take its toll on the previously abundant wheat crops. Farmers, however, were quick to diversify and were soon planting orchards and vineyards to replace the wheat fields. Before long, raisins became a major crop in Selma, so much so that by 1963 the Selma area was growing 90 percent of the world’s raisins and the town adopted the moniker “Raisin Capital of the World.” After World War II, Selma began to expand with the building of Highway 99 connecting to Fresno and Bakersfield. Today, while many residents make the daily commute into Fresno, the town has retained its agricultural roots and small town charm.
