At the confluence

Many people perceive Three Rivers little more than a wayside stop or a launching pad for trips into Sequoia National Park. From a historic perspective, it is much more, however. Here the agricultural and industrial frontiers met, the breadbasket of the world was sparked, the first CCC camps helped raise the U.S. out of the Great Depression, and the people who tend one of the oldest National Parks continue to thrive.
