The community of Florin, California had been established approximately eight miles southwest of Sacramento next to the railroad line. In the fields next to Florin the Chinese laborers were being replaced with Issei immigrants, starting around the 1890ís. The small community of Florin became one of the largest Nikkei agricultural communities in California when farmers started shifting from growing hay and wheat to the more intensely cultivated vineyards and strawberry fields. The Japanese immigrants either owner or leased numerous acres of land in the early 1910í s and the Nihonmachi in Florin was overshadowing other regions of the community.
The small community emerged as a target for anti-Japanese political campaigns by drawing national attention as a result of the fact that their prominence became so pronounced. Politicians traveled the short distance from Sacramento to Florin to observe first hand this Japanese problem, prior to 1913, when the Alien Land Act was passed, which restricted the ownership of land aliens who were ineligible for citizenship. The local school board segregated form the elementary school in Florin some years later. The Nihonmachi in Florin expanded and served as the commercial, social, and cultural center for the Japanese farm families all around the region, in spite these assaults.
During the 1890ís, when the first Issei arrived and within a few short years the transition was quickly made from cultivation land as laborers to tenet farmers to owning and leasing by the Japanese immigrants around Florin. Dwellings such as farmhouses known as Takeokas were sparsely furnished and usually rough wooden building built by the farmers themselves. As laborers of a temporary nature located housing with some permanent residents farmhouses became boarding houses, during harvest time. Between the rows of grape vines, Japanese farmers planted strawberries and counted on the strawberries to provide a money making crop until the vineyards were mature. Shipping companies connected national and local markets to the Nikkei farmers as the production of both fruits expanded. There was a record breaking 130 railroad cars of Tokay grapes left the Southern Pacific railroad depot in Florin in 1941.
Florin was previously the strawberry capital of the world. Visitors have to drive past the restaurants and the mall with institutional blandness and lightening quickness to find the location. Even before the Model T automobile was in the streets, numerous crates of strawberries were leaving by railroad cars. Annual strawberry festivals we celebrated by civic groups for their agrarian riches.
In the early 1900ís the packing shed and warehouses were very busy by the Nojiri Company. In an effort to expand the strawberry market, shippers had begun to fill railroad cars with ice ten years earlier. However, it wasnít going to be strawberry fields forever for Florin.
These days, the only thing that is left are some storefront buildings, some not occupied, some occupied the hug the edge of Florin Road about a mile east from what is currently known as Power Inn Road after it narrows down from a wide thoroughfare. The hotel, barber shops, and the busy stores are no longer here. The railroad depot that put Florin on the map has disappeared. There is no reason for the train to stop here anymore. There are block of low slung houses alternating with wide open fields surrounding the small unincorporated community.
In 1852, when a man named Edwin Croker, who was the brother of the railroad baron, Charles and another man named James Rutter, who was a horticulturist purchased 240 acres at Power Inn and Florin Roads, the small community got its start. Mr. Crocker managed to come up with the name of Florin from flora because he was Impressed with the wildflowers that filled the fields, In the meantime, Mr. Rutter began experimenting with different varieties of grapes and fruit seedlings and planted the first Tokay grapes in California.
Industrial employment enticed many returning farmer away from the strawberry fields in Florin following WW II. Florin was on the map with the arrival of the post office and the railroad.
Although the strawberries were ripe, they were left hanging. Some The land that the Japanese immigrants and their families were forced to leave were tended to by some ranchers in Florin. Numerous farmers were enticed away from the strawberry fields by industries that were offering easier working conditions and steady salaries by then. The strawberry festivals had long been forgotten.
However, in 1985, a historical group of some 200 members brought back the strawberry festivals. Strawberry growing is being revived by new Southeast Asia immigrants in the unique, small bedroom community. There are roadside stands selling strawberries all around the region. There is in fact an incredible amount of involvement in reviving the strawberry industry. Florin looks forward to a bright future, with or without the strawberry industry. However, this small bedroom community can never forget its past.
