At the foot of the sprawling Sierra Nevada Mountains, Sanger, California is just ten miles east of Fresno in the Central Valley. In 1888 the Southern Pacific Railroad established a junction in the area and the town soon adopted the name Sanger, after Joseph Sanger Jr., a prominent official in the Railroad Yardmasters Association. Although Sanger, who lived in Massachusetts, never stepped foot in the town, his daughter Alice was invited to the town’s Golden Jubilee in 1938. She, however, also never made it, but did admit she had received beaming reviews of the place by friends who had traveled west. In 1926 President Calvin Coolidge designated the General Grant Tree, a giant sequoia, in nearby King’s Canyon as the Nation’s Christmas Tree. It seems two important businessmen from Sanger, Charles E. Lee and R.J. Senior became inspired by the tree and made plans for an annual ceremony to celebrate the Christmas season. At one of the early observances, King’s Canyon superintendent Colonel John White said, “We are gathered around a tree that is worthy of representing the spirit of America on Christmas Day.” Nearly two centuries old, the General Grant is the second largest tree in the world (after General Sherman). Accolades followed with Sanger named the Christmas Tree City in 1949 and the tree commemorated as a national shrine by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1956. Today, Sanger combines commercial and agricultural interests with a small-town atmosphere.
It’s certain that a Sanger tutor will get you caught up on your most difficult academic subjects so you can take time to enjoy Sanger and Fresno as well as the surrounding areas. The Sanger Depot Museum helps unlock the rich history of Sanger and the Central Valley. Originally the railroad station for the Southern Pacific, the site of the museum was once the center of the town. Agricultural crops, lumber and other goods passed through the depot during most of the 20th century until it was finally closed in the 1970’s. At that time, it was determined to be the oldest building in Sanger. The museum houses several rooms dedicated to different facets of the area’s history. The Indian Room features basketry from the Yokut tribe who lived in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas. The Pioneer Room maintains a collection of photographs of Sanger’s first families while the Victorian Room is a replica of a house built in Sanger in the late 1800’s.
It’s only about an hour’s drive along Highway 180 to Kings Canyon National Park. Established in 1940, the park’s main attraction is the General Grant Grove of giant sequoias featuring thousand-year-old trees which are among the largest in the world. Carved out of massive glaciers during the ice age, Kings Canyon is much like nearby Yosemite Valley. The area is a hiker’s heaven, not only for multi-day backpacking excursions, but also for one day treks. Elevations vary throughout the canyon with Hume Lake below 2,000-feet and the General Grant at 6,500-feet. The park is open from spring to fall with closures in the winter months.
Opened in the early 1900’s, the Fresno Chaffee Zoo in downtown Fresno is home to 190 species of animals with mammals such as African elephants, lions, Malayan tigers and red kangaroos and birds such as flamingos and brown pelicans. Attractions include the African Adventure, a 13-acre area which creates a naturalistic habitat mimicking the plains and savannas of Africa. Animals include cheetahs, white rhinos and giraffe. Roo Walkabout takes visitors through an exhibit which features kangaroos, emus and kookaburras. For youngsters, Valley Farm is a petting zoo with farm animals such as sheep, goats, cows and chickens.
