History

Dr. Lovern Lee Moore first made his home in what was western Tulare County, California—now the City of Lemoore—in April, 1871. It was near Tulare Lake, then the largest body of water in central California. This was a stretch of vast virgin land on which sheep, horses and wild animals had grazed but had never been cultivated before American pioneers from eastern states had come to California.
