City Description:
The last “best small town” in Southern California, Fillmore is unspoiled with its clear blue skies, lush orange groves and picturesque mountains. It is nestled in the heart of the Heritage Valley in northern Ventura County. Fillmore was founded over 100 years ago beside a railway station and it’s still a “railroad” town today. With its small-town atmosphere, turn-of-the-century downtown architecture and railroad tracks, filming crews for movies and television are a regular occurrence.
