Long Description:
Butterfield Overland Mail

At this place, near midnight Oct. 8, 1858, Visalians greeted
with an anvil salute, the first coach of the pioneer
line to arrive from St. Louis. The Visalians hearty welcome
caused the only "through" passenger to remark "They
ought to be remembered in the history of the town, so
I hereby immortalize them."

Jim Savage Chapter 1852
