Winchell Cove Cemetery

The site of Fort Miller (1851-1866) lies about one mile north and that of the pioneer town of Millerton (1851-1874) about one and one-half miles northwest on the then Visalia - Stockton Road. Both sites are now covered by the waters of Millerton Lake.

The first courthouse of Fresno County was constructed in 1887 in the town of Millerton and the first public school in Fresno County was opened in the hospital building at Fort Miller in 1860.

The granite blocks forming this monument were part of the old courthouse.
