Founded by the Pacific Improvement Co. following the completion of Southern Pacific's east side railroad in May 1888. Its name honors Joseph Sanger, Jr., Indiana rail executive. Sanger, supported by a rich fruit citrus farming district which later made it a fruit and packing center, soon eclipsed neighboring Centerville.

In 1890, Sanger became an important part of a major Sierra Nevada logging operation, with a mill which operated nearly four decades. The 54 mile Millwood Flume (later extended to Hume) terminated here. Sanger's ties to the Sierra and support of the annual Yule pilgrimage to the General Grant Tree earned its designation as the nation's Christmas Tree City. The City of Sanger was incorporated on May 15, 1911. The S. P. depot, built in 1888 and now Sanger's oldest building, was moved to this location for use as a museum in 1977.
