Information About Fillmore Real Estate
The area around Fillmore was first discovered in 1769, when a Spanish expedition made camp after coming down from the valley. The city was officially founded in 1887, mostly due to the construction of the Southern Pacific Rail Line. In 1914, the city voted for incorporation. In terms of area, Fillmore is the smallest city in Ventura County measuring a total area of only 3.4 square miles. As stated by the United States Census Bureau, the population of Fillmore was 15,002 in 2010.
Fillmore is located in the northern part of Ventura County. The city is nestled in the Santa Clara River Valley, below the San Cayatano Mountain peak. Like the neighboring city of Santa Paula, Fillmore is an agricultural area. Located nearby are a fish hatchery and the Sespe Condor Sanctuary, which is a wildlife refuge in the Topatopa Mountains. The sanctuary was instrumental in teaching California condors to avoid power lines that were killing many of the species. By using mock power poles that emitted mild shocks when the condors landed on them, the birds eventually learned to avoid power poles, aiding in a significant reduction of the mortality rate of the largest land bird in North America.
