About: merced, california
Merced is located in central California in Merced County. It is situated in the San Joaquin Valley. The town is named after the Merced river which flows just outside town limits. In Spanish Merced means "favor." Merced was known as the "Gateway to Yosemite," as it is only two hours away from Yosemite National Park. The city was incorporated into California in 1889. Merced is home to the Castle Air Force Base, which has in recent years closed. Traditionally, the economy of the city has depended upon agribusiness and the presence of the Castle Air Force Base, so the closing of the base has significantly affected residents.
