Located in the state of California and the second-most populous city in San Joaquin County, Tracy is situated in a geographic triangle that was formed by Interstate 205 in the north, by Interstate 5 on the east, and Interstate 580 in the southwest which gave rise to the state’s motto, that has not been recorded in the city’s official website: “Think Inside the Triangle.” The area where the city presently stands has been populated by the Native American tribe the Yokuts. Their lives were mostly around the subsistence of food that are in the rivers and creeks. The tribe was forced out by the Spanish and were later forced out as well by the Mexican and American immigrants that were then savaged by diseases. Tracy’s economy started to grow rapidly as an agricultural area when the railroads were opened for operations but began to decline in the 1950s.
