Huntington Boulevard/SE Fresno/Fairgrounds

Postby Fresno2SoCal » Thu Mar 30, 2017 8:40 pm

I've always been curious about the older parts of Fresno like Huntington Bl. and the Fresno Fairgrounds. Who lived in that area? What was it like, pre 1980.

I assume it was the Van Ness extension of it's day, a bit snooty.

I grew up in the area (late fifties through the sixties). Nice area then, and safe. We rode our bikes up and down Huntington. Van Ness Extension was considered the more "upscale" area. The Fairgrounds area was more lower middle-class. This entire section of town you're asking about had been a big Armenian community for decades.
