Situated in the San Joaquin Valley near some of California's largest transit corridors, the city of Tracy is poised to become an important and influential community. Today, Tracy is a modern and bustling town that some 70,000 people-along with a growing assortment of businesses-call home. But the journey from a railroad coal-loading station to farming community to commercial center is as full of twists and turns as the early roads across the Altamont Pass. The old buildings lining Sixth Street have surprising stories to tell, just like the roads, fields, and homesteads that have defined Tracy over time.

Although the rail yards and agricultural centers of the past are now in many cases replaced by more modern trappings, this engaging retrospective will help both residents and visitors alike appreciate the unique stories, lifestyles, and different pace of Tracy in years gone by.
