Tulare County was formed from parts of Mariposa County in 1852.
Parts of the county's territory were given to Fresno County in
1856, to Kern County in 1866, to Inyo County in 1866 and Kings
County in 1893. Commandante Pedro Fages, while hunting for
deserters in 1772, discovered a great lake surrounded by marshes
and filled with rushes which he named Los Tules (the tules). It
is from this lake that the county derives its name. The root of
the name Tulare is found in the Mexican word tullin, designating
cattail or similar reeds. Tularemia is named after Tulare
