Information on:

Earlimart - Colonel Allensworth State Historic Park

3300 Young Road

A century has passed since the founding of this unique town dedicated to the dignity of the human spirit. Although the centennial celebration is now a part of history, there are still plenty of opportunities to come learn about Colonel Allen Allensworth and the courageous group of families and individuals who believed they could create their own version of the "American Dream". Come experience the inspiring story of the people who came to an isolated spot in the southern San Joaquin Valley to build a place of their own, a place where hard work, dedication, and faith would allow them and their children the opportunity to control their own discrimination-free destiny.

Colonel Allensworth SHP is a bike friendly park! On your next visit bring your bicycle and enjoy the Park!  You might want to  ask the staff about the types of bicycles that were used in Allensworth.

Interesting historical site with a nice campground. Historical site is well-signed. Camp sites are for trailers but would work for tent. They’re level with covered picnic tables and fire pits. No hookups but nearby water and bathrooms. Limited shade in campground, no shade in historical area. Main downside is that the site is about 1/4 mile from a well-used train track so campers may want earplugs.

It's great for those who enjoy antiquities. The houses are mid 1800s and are furnished accordingly. It's set up as a small town with a school house, church and businesses spread out over about 80 acres. There are benches for eating and grilling and public bathrooms. A good place to lose yourself for a bit.
