Old Armenian Town in Fresno, California is a former enclave of Armenian immigrants. The Armenian Community Center[1] on Ventura Street is a major community gathering place and social hall. So is the Holy Trinity Armenian Apostolic Church.[2] There are also a number of Armenian restaurants and delis, specializing in Armenian food.

The area is currently being redeveloped. A major commercial development also called "Old Armenian Town" is underway[when?] and contains a courthouse for California's Fifth Appellate District Court of Appeals, a major multi-story commercial office building, and an Armenian Museum.
