Tehachapi was founded in 1876 when the Southern Pacific Railroad was built through here. The town serves as a commercial center for the ranches in the area and, to a small degree, as a commuter suburb for the Bakersfield area. Tehachapi was bypassed in 1970 by the current alignment of the State 58 Freeway.
