But it was the Carnation Dairy that put the town on the map. The valley became world-famous as the "Home for Contented Cows." One cow, nicknamed "Possum Sweetheart," produced more than 37,000 pounds of milk in one year - a world record.

A beautiful stone church stands at the end of town, as if to end the naming controversy - it's called Tolt Congregational Church.
