Chowchilla is a city in Madera County, California, United States. The population was 18,720 at the 2010 census, up from 11,127 at the 2000 census.
The name "Chowchilla" is derived from the indigenous American tribe of Chauchila (the spelling is inconsistent in reference guides) Yokut Indians which once lived in the area. The name itself evidently translates as "Murderers" and is apparently a reference to the warlike nature of the Chauchila tribe.
Chowchilla made national news on July 15, 1976, when 26 students and their bus driver were kidnapped from a bus and held in a buried moving van at a quarry in Livermore, California. The driver and some of the students were able to escape and notify the quarry guard. All the victims returned unharmed. The quarry owner’s son and two friends were convicted and sentenced to life in prison.
The median income for a household in the city was $30,729, and the median income for a family was $35,741.
