In 1819, a fair was instituted, to take place every Thursday, by the owner of the Engenho de Aramaré Luis Paulino d'Oliveira Pinto da França. After this a town must have grown around the fair grounds, and on land given by the family of Arthur Pacheco Pereira, a champion of the town's emancipation.[4]
