From the Guidebook:
Under this tree on July 10,
1852, a party commanded by Major James D. Savage conducted
the election by which Tulare County was organized. Woodville,
site of Wood's cabin, and the 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 County.'
