#410 Tulare County Election Tree
Under this tree a party commanded by Major James D. Savage, on July 10, 1852, conducted an election by which Tulare County was organized. Woodsville, site of Wood's cabin, the first small town settled by white men in Tulare County, and first county seat, was located about one-half mile south of this marker. This general area, the delta of the Kaweah River, was also known as the "Four Creeks Country."
