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.

Shafter schools are part of multiple school districts including Richland Union, Maple, and Kern Union. Schools for young students and pre-teens include Golden Oak Elementary, Sequoia Elementary, Maple Elementary, and Richland Junior High.

Some of the city’s largest employers are Formica, Paramount Farming, and the Cemex Corporation. There are also large distribution centers in town for both Target and America’s Tire.

While it is one of the warmer, drier parts of California during the summer, Shafter weather is still comfortable and enjoyable for most of the year.
