History & History Related Items

Fountain Valley history:

This previously marsh area was called Gospel Swamp and its only inhabitants were mostly cattle that grazed and sometime preachers who set up their revival tents on the dry areas. A drought during the depression era of the 1930's helped to drain the marshes and brought out the area's rich soils for agriculture. Now Fountain Valley is a mainly residential area with some business. It was originally named Talbert for pioneer, James T. Talbert. It was renamed as Fountain Valley in 1957 because of the many artesian wells in the community.
