The Bakersfield area was first settled by a handful of pioneers around 1860. Known as Baker’s Field, the settlement became an attractive stopover for travelers attracted by the California gold rush. Bakersfield was officially incorporated as a city in 1873. The town’s population quickly grew, mostly bringing new residents employed by the oil industry. Bakersfield continues to be a fast-growing city and its population more than tripled from 1980-2010.
Visitors and residents alike can enjoy trips to the Kern County Museum, which features a collection of regional artifacts. The Buena Vista Museum of Natural History has a collection of Miocene-era marine fossils from the area, as well as other displays.
California’s Scottish Games and Clan Gatherings is held here every spring, and every summer St. George’s Greek Orthodox Church hosts an annual festival. Other annual events include the Lowrider National, Kern County Basque Festival, an intertribal pow wow held by the Native American Preservation Council of Kern County, and Famoso Raceway’s drag racing event. Horse shows are an important part of Bakersfield activities.
