This farm and buildings were probably built between the years of 1890 and 1900, in east Fresno. Other farms in this county and Madera County have that history of similar layout of the main house and tank house. The tank house was adjacent to a well and windmill in all of these locations. This ranch location was on what later became the Northwest corner of Ashlan Avenue and Temperance Avenue. These buildings have since been leveled [around 2019] and a new house sits there now. In a title search at the Fresno County Hall of Records shows that the property was twenty acres of fruit trees, in what comprised 8 lots of the Arlington Heights Tract of Fresno County. In 1912, Bradley and Wallace sold the farm to C.R. League and Martha Moffett, both of Fresno. If there were owners earlier than Bradley and Wallace, I could not find.
