Why We Love Kingsburg


Kingsburg, California, a small city located in the heart of the San Joaquin Valley and Fresno County, is a charming and welcoming community that offers a unique blend of history, natural beauty and modern amenities. It’s no wonder SJV Homes chose Kingsburg for its popular Summerlyn development. 

Kingsburg was founded in the late 19th century as a railroad town and was originally a Swedish settlement referred to as the “Kings River Switch.” Today, the city remains proud of its heritage and celebrates its Swedish history each May with the Kingsburg Swedish Festival, a two-day event that features traditional Swedish food, music and dance. The festival attracts thousands of visitors each year to celebrate the city's nod to its Swedish roots. 

In addition to its rich cultural heritage, Kingsburg is known for its beautiful natural setting. Surrounded by rolling hills and lush farmlands, it’s a short drive from the Sierra Nevada Mountains, making it an ideal destination for outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you enjoy hiking, camping, fishing or simply taking in stunning natural beauty, Kingsburg is the perfect place to get back to nature. 

Alternatively, Kingsburg is a modern city with a thriving economy home to several businesses and industries, including agriculture, retail and healthcare. And since Kingsburg is just a quick drive to larger cities like Fresno and Visalia, it’s an ideal place for residents who want to live in a smaller community while having access to the amenities of a larger city. 

We love Kingsburg’s strong sense of community. The city is known for its friendly residents and tight-knit neighborhoods. There is always something happening from local festivals and events to community sports leagues and volunteer opportunities. 

Whether you are looking for a small-town feel with easy access to larger cities or simply want to experience the natural beauty of Central California, Kingsburg is the perfect place to call home. At Summerlyn we have three-, four- and five-bedroom homes available ranging in size from 2,360 to 3,551 square feet.
