Congratulations! Kerman PD Explorer Post 777. Awesome job at the Explorer Competition in Las Vegas. The Advisors and the Explorers put in a lot of hard work and it paid off. Great job representing Kerman. We are very proud!

A little history for you... Kerman was first established by the Southern Pacific Railroad Company as a way station with a pump and watering tank in 1891. The site was originally named Collis in honor of the president of the railroad Collis P. Huntington. It was at this site in 1892 that the famous Sontag and Evans gang held up the San Francisco-Los Angeles passenger train, one of the last train robberies in the country and perhaps the most historical event to occur in Kerman. Settlement and cultivation of the Kerman area began and continued through the turn of the century as irrigation projects brought water to the area, primarily from the Kings River to the south. In 1900, William G. Kerckhoff and Jacob Mansar purchased some 3,027 acres of land from the Bank of California. These men formed the Fresno Irrigated Farms Company. In 1906, Collis was renamed Kerman from the men’s names (KERckhoff and MANsar).

Congratulations to all!

From Kerman.

Congratulations Deputy Royal. keep up the great work!
