Founded in 1852, Baiseria was the oldest permanent inland frontier between Stockton and Los Angeles. It is the location of the county office of Tureari County, the largest population in the county, and the economic center of Sequoia Valley, which is said to be one of the largest productive single agricultural areas in Japan. It is a few miles away from the Sierra Nevada Mountains, which are also the highest in Japan, and the highest mountain, Whitney, lies within Tureari and Inyo. It is the nearest city to Sequoia National Park where the Giant Sequoia tree, the largest living thing on the planet, grows. For this reason, it is also called 'the place where the ballet meets the Giants.'
The first people to enter the Viceroyalty and Mono Indians thousands of years ago. It is unknown when the Europeans first came to this place, but the first person to record in writing was a Spanish soldier in 1722 and explorer Pedro Fájess.
When California was promoted to the state of the United States in 1850, there was no Tureari County. The region that is now Tureari County was part of the larger Mariposa County. In 1852 some pioneers entered the area and called it Four Creek. The area was named after the fact that many creeks and rivers flowed out of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The water made up a wide expanse of marsh and a magnificent oak forest. A group of ardent pioneers petitioned the State Council to establish a county, and on July 10, 1852, Tureari County was born.
The first inhabitants of the fort built by the pioneers were Nathaniel Byz. Bayes were responsible for surveying the new frontier. In November, 1852, there were 60 or 80 residents in this town, and 30 of them were children of school age. The town is on a small section of the Kaware River and was destined to be the location of the Tureari County building," he said. In 1853, the prediction came true, and Baselia continued to be the location of the county office after that. The name of Baselia was derived from the name of Baselia, Kentucky, the home of Nathaniel Bayes.
The early growth of Baiseilia was partly contributed by the gold rush along the Khan River. When a migrant miner with a passion for gold turned out to be through Visairia and found that the temptation was not realized, he returned to Visairia and settled and raised his family. In 1859, it became the passing point of the Mountain Stagecoach at John Butterfield, which connected San Francisco from St. Louis. A nameplate showing the mark is set up on Higashi Main Street 116. Some of the early residents were notorious and unmanageable for feeding travelers passing through the Batafield Stagecoach. Sake bars and hotels appeared around the central area where the station was used as a stop for the stagecoach, and the business was active even if it involved some risk.
The next thing to remember was that in 1860 a telegraph passed. The Biseilean inhabitants were able to get information about what happened on the East Coast of the United States, and it developed into the Civil War. During the Civil War, many residents of Baisilia were unable to decide whether they had come to the North or the South, and simply fought their own miniature insurrection on the main street. No one knew the outcome of the war, but after the results were obviously satisfactory to the participants, life returned to normal. The federal government, however, did not accept this easily, and in response to the concerns about separation activities, they banned the Equal Rights Ispojitter newspaper, a newspaper near the south, and formed a garrison. In 1862, Camp Babbit was built to stop the explicit support of the south and to maintain local law and order. During the Civil War in 1864, Baiselia became a municipality and gained new rights as a town.
In 1874, Viceroyalty was promoted to the city and the city council and ex-officio mayor and chairperson were born.
In 1904, the Biseilia Electric Railway was incorporated into the corporation.
In 2009 and 2010, Amgen Tour of California was held in Baisaria.
The Visairia is divided into several areas, some of which are incorporated into the region or community. There are several independent cities around Byesilia, which are usually grouped into Byesilia since they are nearby. The city is usually divided into central towns, northern Biseilia, east side, southwest Biseilia, industrial regions, Mooney and west side.
In Baisseria, latitude 36 degrees 19 minutes 27 seconds north and longitude 119 degrees 18 minutes 26 seconds west and latitude 36.32417 degrees north and longitude 119.30722 degrees west/ 36.32417 degrees west; -119.30722, irregular in shape. According to the National Census Bureau of the United States of America, the total area of the city is 28.6 square miles (74.0 km 2) and all land.
The highest altitude in this area is Mount Whitney (4,418 meters). The hilly area of the city is called Venice Hills, and the entire mountain base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains is located in the eastern part of the city. There are four streams running from the mountains. The big river was originally the St. John's River, which started at a watershed dam on the Kauer River and limited in the number of seasons along the stream. Other examples include Mill Creek, Cameron Creek and Packwood Creek. There are a lot of small creeks that run through the city. The Freiant Khan Canal runs east of the city along the western edge of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
Because Viseilia is close to the Pacific Rim Volcanic Zone, it is susceptible to earthquakes. Due to geological instability, many faults have been created on the surface and under the ground, causing approximately 10,000 earthquakes a year. One of the major faults is the San Andreas Fault. I have never been hit by a big earthquake. Except for a few earthquakes, they are small in scale and do not constitute a sensitive earthquake. A part of the city is liable to flooding. The San Joaquin Valley and the metropolitan area are also at risk of an overrun earthquake.
Although the Viceroyria is somewhat similar to the Mediterranean climate, it has a slight amount of rain near the step climate (Bsh, Keppeng's Climate Division) and not enough to reach the desert climate (BWh). It is possible to enjoy plenty of sunshine throughout the year, and only 26 days a year of rainfall is measurable.
From April to October, warm weather changes to hot weather and is dry. The average daytime maximum temperature is 74-94 °F (23-34°C), and the average nighttime minimum temperature is 48-65°F (9-18°C). However, the temperature often exceeds 100°F (38°C) and sometimes reaches 105°F (41°C).
From November to March, it is warm and has a lot of rain. The average daytime maximum temperature is 54-67 °F (12-19°C), and the average nighttime minimum temperature is 36-45°F (2-7°C). However, the temperature may fall below 30s (to 5°C), or up to 70°F (21°C).
The annual average amount of rainfall is 11 inches (279.40 mm), which falls mainly in winter and spring (November to March), but generally it is a light shower. Sometimes I get caught in heavy rain and thunder. The San Joaquin Valley has little rain, but the mountains are large. On average, it is rare to have a rainy year, and after a dry year (perhaps 7-8 inches, 180-200 mm), the average year or more continues for a year or two. Snow is very rare, but every winter there is snow in the mountains just a few miles east of the city area. The record snowfall in the city was less than 3 inches (7.62 cm) on January 25, 1999.

The Viceroyalty region is rich in natural plant species because of its various habitats, such as creek, rivers, hills and mountains. Among them are Calodrous decurrens, Quercus lobata, California bay, Artostalus manzanita, Salvia spathacea, Cercocarpus betulioides, Milk Widois speciosa, Alfsia, Albigelensia, California Monium, California Classic, California Classic, California Classic, and Melisia.
Because of its strong dependence on terrain and automobiles, and because of its agriculture, there is a form of air pollution called smog. Other parts of the area and the San Joaquin Valley are apt to cause air reversal by holding exhaust gas generated from sources such as cars, aircraft, locomotives, agriculture and manufacturing. Unlike other cities that depend on rain to clear smog, the area has a 11.03" (280 mm) annual rainfall and little rain. Air pollution can continue for days. Because of the air quality problems of Viceilia and other major cities, domestic environmental laws such as the Clean Air Act were established. In recent years, California has been trying to curb air pollution by forcing low-emission vehicles ahead of the nation. In summer, it is dry and hot, so smog is especially common only during this period. It's not so much a problem in winter because the storm is going to clear the smog. Among the ways to reduce pollution, such as electric cars and hybrid cars, more aggressive measures have been chosen to keep smog down.
As a result, levels of pollution have decreased over the past several decades. The number of times the smog warning stage 1 was reported has been almost zero since the New Millennium, starting from more than 100 times a year in the 1970s. Despite these improvements, the 2006 report by the American Society of Respiratory Engineers (US) revealed that the city of Baiseria was among the 11th cities in the country because of short-term pollution and annual pollution indicators. In the 2007 report, it was ranked fourth, and in the 2008 report, it was ranked third in a short period and ranked fourth in a year.
The economy of Baisseilia is supported by agriculture (especially grapes, olives, cotton, citrus fruits and seeds), the livestock industry, logistics and manufacturing facilities (electronic parts and paper products are an important industrial sector). Light industrial, industrial and commercial logistics are the fastest growing sector in the number of citizen jobs in Byesilia.
Tureari County, Sequoia College, and the Caware Delta Medical Center are the major employers of the city.
There are two shopping centers in the city. The Biseilia Mall opened in 1964 and was the first indoor shopping center in California. Sequoia Mall opened in 1975.
Biseilia is being advertised on TV and on the Internet as one of the four cities in California, where Sprint Nextel's "4G" cell phone was used as the first test market.
According to the 2008 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report of Baiselia, the top 10 employers in the city are as follows:
|rank||employer||number of employees|
|2||Biseilia Integrated School District||2,372|
|1||Kauer Delta Medical Center||2,123|
|7||Biseilia Medical Clinic||300|
|8||Joe Ann Stores||260|

Like most of the Sanjoaquin Valley, there are more voters registered with the Republican Party than the Democratic Party.
The number of registered voters in Bavaria is 51,718, with approximately 31.9% being Democratic and 49.1% being Republican. The remaining 19.0% are either independent or supporters of minor political parties such as the Green Party of America and the Libertarian Party.
