AAA Editor Notes
Colonel Allensworth State Historic Park, 7 mi. w. on CR J22, was the only California town founded, financed and governed by African-Americans. Founded in 1908 as an agricultural community, it flourished until a declining and unpredictable water supply, a demand for manpower during World War I and the Great Depression lead to its gradual demise. On the grounds is a 1912 schoolhouse, the Mary Dickenson Memorial Library, Colonel Allensworth's residence, a visitor center, a picnic area and a campground. A video titled “Allensworth: A Piece of the World” is shown upon request. Guided tours are available by advance arrangements.

Guided tours are available. Camping is permitted. Picnicking is permitted.

Admission
$6 per private vehicle; $5 (senior citizens per private vehicle).
Hours
Park open daily 9-5. Visitor center open daily 10-4. Closed Jan. 1 and Christmas. Allow 2 hours minimum.
