What Bert Has To Say About Madera Metro Area

Madera means “lumber” in Spanish. However, you won’t find many naturally-occurring trees nor much of a timber industry in this mostly agricultural San Joaquin Valley town. It is located smack in the center of California’s broad, flat, agricultural Central Valley. The name dates back to the 1870’s when loggers built a flume to bring logs from the vast Sierras to the east to a railroad loading point.
