City Government Officials

Originally named Riverdale in 1881. The Postal Service rejected the name, however, because there was already a Riverdale in Fresno County. The post office name was changed to Mason. Soon afterward, residents changed the name to Glendale. There were 25 other Glendales in the U.S. at the time.
