Near Clovis in Fresno County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The stage route from Visalia to Millerton passed nearby and soon a small village sprang up including a hotel, store, stables, and a Post Office to which the name "Academy" attached. Later it was a stopping place for the Tollhouse Teamsters.
Many of Fresno County's earliest families settled hereabout engaging in the sheep and later the cattle business. Many of them and their descendants now rest in the nearby pioneer cemetery.
