community is located northwest of Fresno off Highway 33.
Incorporated in 1914, Firebaugh has grown from ferry crossing to
a small agriculture based city. Before the railroad, the San
Joaquin River was the major thoroughfare to upstream
communities. The ferry, located in Firebaugh, was the major
crossing for prospectors heading for gold country. Ferries were
the only way to cross the river until the late 1800's when the
first bridges were built. The San Joaquin River played a major
role in the settling of the valley and Firebaugh is one of the
oldest historical towns on the Westside.
