Weldon is a small community in the beautiful Sequoia National Forrest. There is not much to do here but the people are very nice and the mountains are enchanting. I moved here from Santa Barbara county and its a much slower paced community here.

Bad schools, not a place to raise kids! too many problems with drugs here. High desert area with sandy nutrient deficient soil. Amost impossible to grow a garden. I have been trying for years. Not enough rain. Most housing properties look like sandy barron lots. One positive is buying a house is cheep. I paid $40,000 for my house. But most of the houses around weldon are old manufactured homes. Most are run down and look aweful. Not a lot of opportunity here for the future of your children or for jobs. If I could I would leave but I'm stuck. Don't move here. You will be sorry. I promise.
