Nipinnawasee

Then – Nipinnawasee ? an Indian site whose name means "home of the deer" ? is one of the newest communities in Eastern Madera County. It began as a Michigan transplant's homestead stake as late as 1908. The U.S. government established a post office here by 1912. Unfortunately, it was destroyed in 1961 when a fire consumed the entire town in just 15 minutes.

Now – Nipinnawasee proper was never rebuilt, although people continue to live in the area for the breath-taking views of the Sierras alone. Most residents drive into Oakhurst 15 minutes away. For a home or other real estate a little higher and a little more rural than nearby Ahwahnee, try Nipinnawasee.
