The City of Kingsburg is a Charter City nestled in the center of the San Joaquin Valley, halfway between Los Angeles and Sacramento. The City was originally established in 1873 as a railroad stop under the name "Kings River Switch". During this time, many Swedish immigrants settled this new area. Even by 1921 the Swedish population was up to 94% within a given three-mile radius, this caused the community to be known as "Little Sweden". This Swedish influence can still be seen in our City today in much of the City's architecture.
Kingsburg's population as of the 2015 Census is 11,711.
