On this spot in the early days was a flowing spring beside which stood a large green bush. Wild horses, deer, elk and antelope watered here and it served as a watering place for sheep and cattle.

The presence of this water caused the railroad in 1872 to locate its station and townsite here.

The name shown on the first map proposed town was Green Bush.

Because of its central location in Fresno County, Leland Stanford changed the name to Fresno Station.

In 1873 when the official map was filed it was entitled Town of Fresno.
