Until 1887, the area was one big farm with a huge orchard, potato fields, hay fields and a big garden that grew every kind of vegetable one could want, which Mr. White had planted. The first post office in the area was named Burney Valley and was established on 6 December 1872. Henry Murphy was the first postmaster; and it was located at "bunker hill'" which was in the same building that also served as a stage stop, trading post and saloon,
