History on a Pinhead

The "town" of Edison was established on the Holdsworth Ranch near Tortuga Creek. A one-teacher school was built on the ranch around 1906 and nineteen students reportedly attended classes there. The school was known as the Edison School, Tortuga School, or the West Loma Vista School.

A post office under the name Edison was opened in 1907 but the town was abandoned by the mid-1920s.
