Company Description

Before any towns existed within Kings County, a handful of pioneers called it home.

The Landmark tree, a huge sycamore located on Lacey Boulevard near Avenue 18-3/4, stood as a beacon to guide early settlers over the otherwise barren valley floor. Cattlemen and gold miners initially settled along the Kings River; and farmers, storekeepers and oilmen later followed.

In 1877, the tracks of the Southern Pacific Railroad brought additional growth and new arrivals from around the world.
In 1893, local voters approved the formation of a new county when a portion of Northern Tulare County was divided to form Kings County.

Today, Kings County combines its relationship with its colorful past history with an optimistic and enthusiastic vision for its future.
