As the county seat and largest city of Tulare County, Visalia serves as the economic center to the region known as the most productive single agricultural area in the United States. Sometimes referred to as the "Gateway to the Sequoias," it lies within miles of the tallest mountain range in the contiguous United States, the Sierra Nevada (U.S.) (see Mount Whitney, which is located in Tulare County), and is the closest major city to Sequoia National Park, home to the some of the largest living things on Earth, the Giant Sequoia trees. Even still, the park, its surrounding forest, and the mountain range are nearly invisible to the metro area, due to the poor air-quality in the region. The geography of the Visalia area remains a mix of heavily irrigated green farmland and scrubby Sierra Nevada foothills just to the east of the city.

History

The Spanish were reluctant to settle in this area because of climate and the danger from the local native American population. An influx of European trappers, traders, explorers, miners and settlers affected the lifestyle of the native Yokuts since the Europeans brought a non hunter-gatherer culture as well as diseases the Yokuts had no resistance to. This decimated the population of the Yokuts and their way of life was virtually destroyed.


The first building was a log stockade called Fort Visalia. It was built in 1852 in fear of attack by native Americans. A stockade is an enclosure of palisades and tall walls made of logs placed side by side vertically with the tops sharpened to provide some security. ...

Oak tradition

Enjoying and caring for oak trees has been a Visalia tradition for nearly 100 years. City neighborhoods lined with these graceful trees show the foresight of early community leaders. When Visalia was founded in 1852, it was located in the largest valley oak woodland in California. Nourished in the fertile soils of the Kaweah River delta, valley oaks covered a 400-square-mile (1,000 km²) area. As Visalia's population grew, more trees were cut down for firewood and to make room for new crops. Fewer trees remained. In the 1890s, Visalians saw the oak tree as a renewable source of community pride and identity that deserved preservation. Community leaders worked together to protect the valley oak. In 1909 they proposed that Tulare County purchase 100 acres (0.40 km²) of oak trees on Mooney Ranch and preserve the land as a park. Mooney Grove Park is still one of the largest valley oak woodlands in California. In 1922, local groups started the first tree planting program, putting into the ground the oak sentinels now lining Highway 198. In 1971, the city passed an ordinance requiring a permit to remove an oak tree. In 1974, maintenance and preservation guidelines were added. Removing a Valley oak tree without a permit can be a $1,000 fine. Source: Visalia Beautification Committee website.


"The End of the Trail"

Visalia was home to the original "The End of the Trail" statue by James Earle Fraser from 1920 to 1968. [2] The city acquired it when they found that the famous statue was being discarded by San Francisco city officials after having no means to display it once the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition was over. Today the original statue is at the National Cowboy & Western Museum in Oklahoma City, OK. Before it was moved for good, a true-to-scale bronze replica was made and placed near the same spot in Mooney's Grove Park where the original had stood for 48 years. End of the Trail James Earle Fraser (November 4, 1876 – October 11, 1953) was an American sculptor, born in Winona, Minnesota. ...
