The Pioneer in Visalia, California is a sculpture by Solon H. Borglum that was first displayed in a world's fair in San Francisco in 1915. It was obtained by Visalia for $150, the cost of shipping it from San Francisco.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]

From 1916 to 1980, it was located in Mooney Grove Park, at 27000 South Mooney Boulevard, in Visalia. It was toppled by an earthquake in 1980 and destroyed. Only the base remains.[2]

However, it remains listed on the National Register.
