Fort Visalia
 
The town of Visalia, Tulare County, was first established in November 1852 when a group of settlers led by Nathaniel Vise erected a fort on the block now bounded by Garden, Bridge, Race and Oak streets. The town grew so rapidly that in the following year the county seat was moved from Woodsville to Visalia. It is not definitely known when the fort was finally dismantled; it was still standing in 1860.
