Long Description:
Poole's Ferry

Most important of Kings River's
earliest crossings, it was operated
from 1851 - 1857 by William Campbell
and John Poole 3 miles above this point.
The ferry and its trading post served
travelers and miners. In July, 1852, it
became the focus of violence when an
armed party led by Walter Harvey,
Tulare County's first judge, raided a
Choinumni Yokuts Indian Village. Yosemite
discoverer Major James D. Savage, famed
Indian trader and peacemaker, tried to
ease tensions but was shot and killed
by Harvey in an argument at the
trading post on Aug 16, 1852
