Located about six miles from downtown Fresno, Clovis is a large suburb in California’s Central Valley. Considered the “Wheat King of the United States” in the late 1800’s, Clovis Marshal Cole first came to the Central Valley as a teenager to work on his father’s 320-acre homestead. With passage of the Homestead Act in 1862, thousands of farmers flocked west including Clovis’ father Stephen H. Cole who established a successful wheat farm just outside the new town of Fresno. When Clovis was 16 his father gave him four horses and a small piece of land which he ultimately parlayed into 50,000 acres of prosperous wheat fields. When the San Joaquin Valley Railroad came through the area it bisected the farms of Cole and his neighbor George Owen. Even though the railroad built its station on Owen’s side, the future town came to be known as Clovis. Both Cole and Owen later sold interest in the land to developer Marcus Pollasky who plotted out the city of Clovis in the 1890’s. Clovis Cole lived to be 83 years old and is buried in Mountain View Cemetery. His home, built in 1914, is still in Fresno although it was moved to make way for Highway 41 in the 1950’s. It is on the National Register of Historic Places. In recent years, older storefronts in downtown Clovis have been renovated and transformed to a popular shopping area known as “Old Town Clovis.”
It’s certain that a Clovis tutor will get you caught up on your most difficult academic subjects so you can take time to enjoy the cities of Clovis and Fresno as well as the surrounding areas. Referred to as the “Gateway to the Sierras,” Clovis is not far from a variety of recreational opportunities in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It’s about an hour’s drive from Clovis to Shaver Lake. The small community in the heart of the western Sierra offers small town ambience and a host of outdoor activities. In the summer, the lake is open for fishing, water skiing, boating and kayaking. In the winter, nearby China Peak Mountain Resort is open for snow skiing, sledding and tubing throughout the winter months. Another 20 miles from Shaver, Huntington Lake is famous for its perfect afternoon sailing conditions and for the large brown trout which inhabit the lake.
Old Town Clovis features shopping, restaurants, a museum and plenty of charm. Shops include antique galleries, trendy boutiques and specialty stores. The Clovis-Big Dry Creek Historical Society and Museum displays historic artifacts from the late 19th into the 20th century, highlighted by vintage photographs, documents and a special military room to honor the nation’s veterans. Whether it’s a meal, a snack or a libation, there are several excellent eateries in Old Town. Trelio’s rewards diners with high quality contemporary American cuisine while Salsa’s Cantina takes visitors south of the border for a delectable Mexican dining experience. For authentic Italian dishes, such as spaghetti and pizza, DiCicco’s has been in Clovis since 1956.
Inspired by the valley’s often scorching summer temperatures, Italian immigrant Baldasare Forestiere went underground, building an amazing architectural structure below the surface. The Forestiere Underground Gardens just west of Clovis on Shaw Avenue include summer and winter bedrooms, a kitchen, bath, parlor with a fireplace and a fish pond. Plants and trees benefit from the skylights throughout the structure as well as the constant temperatures. Some of the vegetation is over 100-years old. The Gardens are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
