Award. Reads Best CN&R. Third Place 2016The city of Chico was founded in 1860 by General John Bidwell, a member of one of the first wagon trains to reach California in 1843. In 1887, the California legislature established the Northern Branch of the State Normal School of California. Chico was chosen as its site, and Bidwell donated land from his cherry orchard for this purpose. This school would come to be called the Chico Normal School, Chico State College and finally California State University, Chico. This thriving college community is home to another Sierra Central branch location.
