Union City was founded in 1850, and renamed Alvarado in 1854, following a merger with neighboring New Haven. When Alvarado merged with Decoto (founded in 1870) in 1959, the new city reclaimed the settlement’s original name. The region’s good soil encouraged farming, and fruit and produce growing were among Alvarado’s earliest industries. Staple goods such as salt, sugar and flour were also produced in both Alvarado and Decoto. The E.H. Dyer beet sugar factory was founded in 1879, becoming the first successful beet sugar company in the United States. The factory was operated by Holly Sugar Company from 1926 until its closure in 1975, with a brief suspension of manufacturing during World War II. Pacific States Steel Company acquired the site of a former brick mill in 1938, and built a steel mill which operated until 1978. The site is currently undergoing environmental clean-up. More recent industries include the McKesson Chemical Company (1971-1986) and American Licorice Company, which moved to Union City in 1970 and manufactures a variety of candies.
