Fair Oaks Historical Society
Virtual Walking Tour

Stop 1 - Entrance Street

When you get to the corner and the Town House ("X"), check out the aerial photo at left showing the area to the north and west. "A" marks the History Center, "B" is the lumberyard, and "X" is where you're standing. The loop over the top (C - D) to Winding Way didn't exist. The whole area was reconstructed when the Sunrise Bridge and Sunrise Blvd. were constructed in the 1950's. Before that, you'd turn southwest ("C") down Entrance Street, go past Sim Green's Garage and Immer Rice's Blacksmith Shop to Wilson Street (now Sunrise Blvd.) and go north to the Fair Oaks Fruit Company and Olive Grower's complex ("D").
