Description 

Post office dates: May 17, 1890-Present

"KAWEAH POST OFFICE, KAWEAH COLONY - The Kaweah cooperative colony was a utopian project started in 1886. For several years it attracted international attention, many settlers came here and actually did much to further their ideals. Unable to secure title to the land, and experiencing internal difficulties, the organization ceased to exist after 1892, leaving the Kaweah Post Office as one of its tangible reminders." - California Historic Landmark No.389
