WHERE HIGHWAY 126 MEETS CENTRAL AVENUE - With the towering San Cayetano Mountain peak providing a fantastic scenic backdrop the small Ventura County city of Fillmore is a unique fusion of Southern California's past and present.
Fillmore's name comes not from a former president, but a former general superintendent. The name was J. A. Fillmore, and he was the general superintendent for the pacific division of the Southern Pacific Railroad.
With its charming small-town feeling and look, old trains provided by The Fillmore & Western Railway, citrus fields all around and the city is rather close to the entertainment capital of the world, many films and television shows have been filmed in Fillmore. While the railway closed after COVID, the city continues to grow with many new homes being built in the east part of town, building towards Piru.
