Historic Fresno High Neighborhood

Written by: Paula Jacobs

Summer is here and the heat is already upon us. Have you ever walked the neighborhoods around Fresno High, that consist of so many historic homes? What did the people back then do to stay cool in the blistering heat of the Valley’s summer? I’ll bet they stopped at Russ Clement’s Gas Station on Van Ness for a cold “pop”. The building is still there today, still the original building but as a repair shop. Now a days, we’ll take a walk to Ampersand Ice Cream for a chilly serving of homemade delights.

Step back in time and imagine the Poker games played in the cool basements of the wealthy homeowners, as we walk along tree lined Van Ness Avenue.

Come winter Van Ness Avenue north of Shields will be transformed into a Christmas wonderland, which was started back in 1920, when the Winning family lit up the deodar tree in honor of their late son. Over the years, many neighbors picked up on the tradition and it took on the name of Christmas Tree Lane in 1931.

It’s really fun learning the history behind some of the most historic homes. Many times you come across homes that have had just one or two owners and the wealth of knowledge they have to share is amazing. People come and people go but the monuments to the past stand tall as quiet reminders to everyone of how this city came to be and the people that helped build it.

If you love local history, homes with old charm and character along with inviting neighbors and quaint shops, then the Fresno High District is perfect for you. Give me a call and I will help you find that perfect piece of history just for you.
