Today Fresno's Armenian population is estimated at about 6,000 and about 10,000 for all of Fresno County (US Census 2000). A constant reminder of the Armenian people's contributions and presence in Fresno is the life-sized monument of David of Sassoon. This beautiful piece of public art was donated to the city by Armenians in 1970, and stands today on the corner of M St. and Tulare.Penny Auctions|Penny Auction Site

Fresno's Armenian population steadily increased, following the Ottoman Empire's genocide of the Armenians in 1915, to the point that Armenians became the largest minority population in Fresno County.

Fresno is not a cultural Mecca, nor is it a particularly great place to visit. Imagine my delight therefore to find this little gem. Authentic Persian/Armenian menu, good service, and good food.

Fresno may be best known to many Armenians as the birthplace of William Saroyan—the great Armenian-American author. A number of Saroyan related organizations, such as the William Saroyan Society, are still based out of Fresno, and the Fresno Metropolitan Museum is home to a permanent exhibit of Saroyan's works and personal objectsSilver bullion

In the San Joaquin Valley, Armenians became pioneers of agriculture very soon after their arrival. Through determined efforts of perserverance, they became leaders in business, religion, education and governement, prevailing in a difficult time of virulent discrimination.
