OLD CITY HALL

Manteca was incorporated as a city barely five years when its brick City Hall was built. That was in 1923. The small town was home to nearly 2,000 hardy souls – most of them farmers – at that time. Irrigation water had been flowing for two decades – liquid gold then as now to the local farmers. Prevailing economic conditions all conspired and guaranteed that it was a good time to build a city hall for the fast-growing town which only counted 100 settlers in 1910.

BUILT ON FAITH

Every church has a story. Manteca's churches are no exception. St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, for one, started as a small frame church that was built in 1916 on East Yosemite Avenue on a piece of land donated by the Bacigaloupi family. The first people to attend Masses at the church were Portuguese dairy farmers who came to this once dry and sandy area at the start of the irrigation district in 1909.
