Ponderosa California is located in the central high Sierras east of Porterville in the California San Joaquin valley at an elevation of 7,200 feet. Situated near the summit of the Upper Tule River of the Sequoia National Forest, Bordering on the eastern side of the Great Western divide Highway, lines one of the most beautiful, well planned, mountain home subdivisions in the high Sierras.
The area is well studded with all varieties of fir and pine trees, especially the Ponderosa pine, for which the subdivision was named; interspersed are groves of Quaking Aspen. The subdivision is part of the Kramer meadow property that has been owned by three generations of the Kramer family for a hundred years.
