Inscription.  
The Kaweah Cooperative Colony was a utopian project started in 1886. For several years it attracted international attention and many settlers came here and actually did much to further their ideals. Unable to secure title to the land, and because of internal difficulties, the organization ceased to exist after 1892, leaving as one of its tangible reminders the Kaweah Post Office.
 
Erected 1948 by California Centennials Commission, and Tulare County Historical Society. (Marker Number 389.)
