California State Historic Landmark 413
Tailholt began as a gold mining camp about 1856 during the Kern River gold
rush. Gold was obtained from placer and shaft operations. Mining has been carried on intermittently
since the time of discovery. During periods of inactivity there has been a considerable settlement
here. The name was changed to White River about 1870.
Nothing remains of this site.
