History

The town was named after the Spanish term for lumber.[10] The town was laid out by the California Lumber Company in 1876.[10] From 1876 to 1931, a 63-mile water flume carried lumber from the mountains to Madera where the lumber was shipped by train.

The first post office at Madera opened in 1877[10] and the town incorporated on March 27, 1907.[10] One of the city's first African Americans to hold an elected office was Rev. Naaman N. Haynes, who was voted in as school board trustee in the 1960s.[11]

Landmarks include the notable and historic Madera water tower and a fully operational drive-in movie theater.
