Utopian dreams

The Kaweah Cooperative Colony was a utopian project started in 1886. For several years it attracted international attention. Unable to secure title to the land and experiencing internal difficulties, the organization ceased to exist after 1892, leaving the Kaweah Post Office as one of its tangible reminders.
