History & History Related Items

Visalia history:

Here is a good history page for Visalia.

This area was first known as Four Creeks when the settlers first came around 1852. There were large oak forests and a swampy area. It was in this area that John Wood built a cabin. The first county seat, Woodsville, was created on this spot. A little west of Woodsville, another community was also begun later in 1852. The early pioneers built a small fort to protect themselves from the local Indians, but they soon learned they really didn't need any protection. Nathaniel Vise first surveyed the settlement. He predicted great things for Visalia. In 1853, they began to happen as Visalia was named the new county seat that year and remains as such to this day. Visalia was named for the hometown of Nathaniel Vise, Visalia, Kentucky. The area grew rapidly as many miners passed through. Once they realized the gold was not there for the taking as they had presumed, many remembered the fertile land they had seen and returned to this area to live.

Visalia is known as the gateway to the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. The giant Sequooia trees grown as high as 311 feet. The summit of Mount Whitney may be seen towering up at 14,494 feet above sea level.

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. [1] 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.
