Overview

Hanford, in the south San Joaquin Valley near the junction of the San Joaquin and Kings Rivers, has grown from its origin as a railroad stop to a modern city and business center while maintaining its agricultural tradition through ranches, dairy farms, vineyards, and other crops. Created by the Southern Pacific Railroad and named for paymaster James Madison Hanford, the town was incorporated in 1891 and named the seat of Kings County two years later. With a penchant for preservation and an appreciation for history, Hanford's residents enjoy living in one of California's true hidden gems.
