From the Guidebook:

Allensworth was established in 1908, a town financed, founded and governed by African Americans. The town stands as a testament to its founders' vision of self-determination and full human potential for America's black citizens. It continues to be a source of cultural pride and heritage for California's African Americans and is an excellent example of the pioneering spirit that has characterized all of California's people for centuries.
