Appraiser One has been serving Fillmore for over 35 years
Fillmore is a small valley town in Northern Ventura County just below the San Cayetano Mountain peak in the Los Padres National Forest and within the Santa Clara River Valley. Fillmore is also located within a historic Ventura County agricultural and tree-farming belt. Educational facilities include one high school, one middle school, and 5 elementary schools. Sespe Condor Sanctuary, where the critically endangered California Condor is recovering, lies to the north. The nearby Sespe Creek is a tributary of the Santa Clara River. It is primarily served by State Highways 126 and 23.
Fillmore has a classic “turn of the 20th century” downtown architecture, a one-screen theater (the Fillmore Towne Theatre), a historic train depot (the Fillmore and Western Railway), a much photographed city hall, and many unique shops and businesses, including a local winery. It is home to Elkins Ranch Golf Course. The small farming community of Bardsdale is located about three miles (5 km) south of Fillmore, directly across the Santa Clara River. Also located nearby are a fish hatchery and the Sespe Creek and Sespe Wilderness, home to the California Condor Sespe sanctuary.
Because of its preserved downtown, Fillmore is a popular filming location for television and movies. The January 4, 2007, episode of CSI entitled Leaving Las Vegas prominently featured old-town Fillmore as the fictional town of “Larkston, Nevada”. Parts of the television series Jericho and Big Love are also filmed there.
