Insurance in Blythe, California

Blythe is a city in Riverside County, California, United States, in the Palo Verde Valley of the Lower Colorado River Valley region, an agricultural area and part of the Colorado Desert along the Colorado River. Blythe was named after Thomas Blythe, a San Francisco financier, who established primary water rights to the Colorado River in the region in 1877. The city was incorporated on July 21, 1916. The population was 20,817 at the 2010 census. The community and the entire valley was hit by a widespread flood in 1922 as a result of the Colorado River's overflow. After the disaster, growth in the valley was limited for decades, and also made the community of Ripley a booming town in only its first year. The construction of dams such as the Hoover Dam and the Parker Dam in the 1930s prevented another flood from hitting Blythe and the Palo Verde Valley. In 1972, Interstate 10 was built through the city, replacing US 60 and US 70 as the main thoroughfare. In 1882, Thomas Blythe, a native of England, came to what is now Blythe, intent on settling and finding real estate for further development. On July 17, 1877, Blythe filed his first claim for Colorado River water on what was to become the "Blythe Intake". He was also involved in farming and mining. Blythe worked with partners William Calloway and George Irish until his death in 1883. No further development occurred until the start of the 20th century. The Blythe Block was later sold in 1901, finally removing its name.
