In 1854 John C. Reid filed a squatter's claim on this spot. This same year Kern County's first school class was held here. In 1859 David Lavers, with his father and brother, John, built a hotel and stage barn on the Old Bull Road. The crossing was the principal community in Linn's Valley until about 1870.
