With 600 persons in residence, the citizens of San Carlos voted to incorporate the city in June 1925. Frederick Drake, known as the “Father of San Carlos”, continued to promote the town and coined the motto “The City of Good Living”. Drake also founded the San Carlos Enquirer (now the Independent Newspaper). He was also a key organizer of nearby Sequoia High School and established the Chamber of Commerce in 1926.
