TIME TRAVELERS'

19th Century America from the Gold Rush to the founding of Fresno County 

Welcome to our Virtual Event!  This all digital Time Travelers' experience is designed to transport you to the 19th Century right here in Fresno County, California.  On your journey you will meet the early settlers of the County.  Learn how our City was once the wild west, full of vice, fertile soil and opportunity.  

Learn about early medical practices and the everyday life of the first residence in the County. Hear from historical figures from Mary Jane McKenzie Hoxie the first teacher to Lewis Leach the first doctor in the area. 

Experience the Native American story from local tribes and learn about early immigrant communities that settled the Westside of the County as they built neighborhoods, started churches and brought their own culture to the area. 

This special event is made possible by the support of Educational Employees Credit Union, Clovis Unified School District, Fresno Unified School District, Assemi Group, The Bonner Family Foundations and California Bank and Trust.  With additional support from The Fresno County Superintendent of  Schools and Bank of America.
