History[edit]

The town was named after the Spanish term for lumber.[6] The town was laid out by the California Lumber Company in 1876.[6] 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[6] and the town incorporated on March 27, 1907.[6]

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

Noteworthy persons born or raised in Madera include:

  • Bill Aken, (aka Zane Ashton) recording artist, award-winning songwriter, arranger, record producer, guitarist and early member of the studio group known as the Wrecking Crew, and inducted into the Musician's Hall Of Fame in 2007. The adopted son of classical guitarist Francisco Mayorga and film actress Lupe Mayorga who were living in Madera at the time. In 1944 Madera may well have been the location of the first-ever inter-racial child adoption in the state of California due to his adoption by Mexican parents.
