About Imperial County
Spanish explorer Melchor Diaz was the first to visit the area now known as Imperial Valley in 1540. After the Mexican-American War, only the northern half of the valley was annexed by the U.S. while the southern half remained under Mexican rule. Yet it wasn’t until after 1900 that permanent settlement of the area began. The county was the last county established in California, forming using lands from the eastern portion of San Diego County in 1907 and is named after the valley where the county rests.
The Valley and, thus, the county received its name from the Imperial Land Company a land colonization company founded in 1900. The company helped establish the California towns of Calexico, Heber, Imperial, and Brawley, as well as Mexicali in Mexico. During the Mexican Revolution, nearly 10,000 farmers and their families were ethnically cleansed by the rival Mexican armies. Many individuals living on the Mexican side of the valley fled to the other side in California, and while many returned home after the revolution, others chose to stay and law down roots in new communities in the U.S. Today, approximately 180,000 residents live and work within Imperial County’s seven cities and eight unincorporated areas. Although the county was the last to be established, it is the ninth largest, spanning over 4,284 square miles of desert.
Imperial County has a rich agricultural history that includes the production of half of the United States’ winter vegetables. It is also an opportune area for geothermal, wind, and solar energy production, and a great place for a wide-range of outdoor recreational activities.
