The city originated as a stop the railroad made on their trip from Sacramento to Los Angeles.
The city of Modesto was supposed to be named after William C. Ralston who had financed many of the projects that were happening in California at the time. At the ceremony Ralston declined the honor and a railroad worker was overheard to say he was “Muy Modesto”, meaning modest. The town was thus named Modesto. Truthfully, Ralston felt the town was not significant enough to bear his name.
The slogan for Modesto was chosen in 1911. It is Water, Wealth, Contentment, and Health. This was actually not the first slogan chosen for the town, but this is the slogan engraved on the arches in town, and it has been captured on film several times.
