Description

Undated, aerial view of Friant, California located below Friant Dam at Millerton Lake. The town had its start as a ferry crossing on the San Joaquin River. In November 1856, the second license ever issued in Fresno County for operation of a ferry was granted to C.P. Converse and the location was called Converse Ferry. Over time the town was called Hamptonville and Pollasky. After 1907 the location was called Friant after Thomas Friant, co-owner of a local lumber company.
