Extensive Definition

Tollhouse is an unincorporated town located in the Sierra Nevadas of Fresno County, California southwest of Shaver Lake.
The town was created in the 1860s around a lumber mill. The name "tollhouse" comes from the fact that the community was also built up in connection to a now-defunct toll road running up the steep slopes of Sarver Peak to Pine Ridge.
The ZIP Code is 93667, and the community is inside area code 559.
