Indio's beginnings are traced to the arrival of the railroad from Los Angeles in 1876. Yuma, Arizona, was the halfway point from LA. The first settlement was named Indian Wells but the name was changed in 1867 to Indio, the Spanish word for native peoples. After the railroad's arrival, the small settlement around Indio grew exponentially. The railroad executives decided to set up a large dwelling for workers and the small town soon became the center of social activity for the surrounding desert area.
The Indio area supported substantial agriculture with the aid of irrigation. Crops that included onions, cotton, grapes, citrus and its famous dates. However, too much water was an ongoing problem as the city experienced flooding several times.
Indio attracted city folk and adventurers that wanted to explore and live in the last frontier in the continental US. In the 1920's, Indio became famous for the health resorts that serviced older people with respiratory problems. By 1930, Indio grew to the point where it incorporated.
The town went in and out of fashion with veterans and soldiers moving in and out to adjacent cities in the area such as Palm Desert. Indio suffered from terrible unemployment in the 1990's, but ten years later, the local economy had fully recovered. Since 1990, Indio's population has grown from 36,000 to nearly 90,000 in 2016.
