California Historical Landmark
—— Fiddletown-Oleta ——
Settled in 1849 by a party from Missouri. According to tradition they were always fiddling, especially while waiting for the rainy season—hence the name..... It was changed by state legislature in 1878 to Oleta, an Indian name said to mean "Old Home Spring."
