Moving to Shafter

Located about 18 miles northwest of Bakersfield, the small city of Shafter, CA started out with humble beginnings as a Santa Fe Railroad loading dock. Named after a U.S. General who commanded troops during the Spanish-American War in Cuba, the area was incorporated back in the year 1938. It has since grown slowly into a comfortable and quiet community.

The Shafter population houses around 18,400 people with a median age of about 27 years old, making it a younger part of town. It is home to a largely Hispanic population with more than 81% of the people in the area coming from Latino origins.
