ALLENSWORTH HISTORIC TOWN SITE
Allensworth was established in 1908 by Colonel Allen Allensworth and a group of dedicated pioneers. It was the only California town financed, founded, and governed by African Americans. The town stands as a testament to its founders' vision of self-determination and full human potential for America's black citizens. It continues to be a source of cultural pride and heritage for California's African American citizens and is an excellent example of the pioneering spirit that has characterized all of California's people for centuries.
