Courthouse Park I learned that in 1872, when the Central Pacific Railroad laid out Fresno, the railroad owners offered the citizens of Fresno a four-block parcel as a site for a park and a future courthouse. Besides being a center of county government, Courthouse Park has played host to a number of events in the history of Fresno and there are memorials to the movers and shakers of the area:
|Honoring the Lao and Hmong soldiers that fought with Americans during the Vietnam War.
|Dr. Martin Luther King
|In memory of the Fresno County Peace Officer who have lost their life in the line of duty
|Benito Juarez- One of Mexico's first Presidents and the only one of full-blooded Indian Blood
|Toltec god Tula from the Mexican state of Hidalgo
|Brotherhood of Man-dedicated to faiths coming to together
|Braceros Memorical- honors the men who came over from Mexico during WWII as laborers
|David of Sassoon- An Armenian folk hero
Fresno Courthouse Park is one of more interesting parks that I have come about in my travels. Glad I did.
