COLONEL ALLENSWORTH STATE HISTORIC PARK
4011 Grant Drive, Earlimart, CA
(661) 849-3433
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. Want to get a feel for Allensworth before you come? Then check out our new "virtual tour" webpage for photographs of Allensworth's historic, restored, and reconstructed buildings.
Amenities:

A visit to Col. Allensworth State Park is mostly self-guided. Visitors can walk (or drive) to each building and read the interpretive markers or by dialing the number on your cellphone, you can hear more about each site. Visitors are requested to stay on the pavement. Families and groups up to about 30 people can call in advance to make arrangements for a guided tour with a ranger. 

There are no restaurants or vending machines so visitors should plan to bring their own food and drinks. Picnic tables are available.

Four times a year, the park hosts special events when buildings are open to tour inside. Information on these events can be found at https://www.friendsofallensworth.org/pages/events
