Valliant was first known as Fowlerville. The U.S Post Office Department relocated the Fowlerville Post Office and changed the name to Valliant, Hosea (pronounced Hosey) L. Fowler, Fowlerville Postmaster, relocated with it and became Valliant's first postmaster. Since its existence the Valliant Post Office has had 5 locations, The first Post Office was on the south Dalton near the the railroad tracks, The present post office, built in 1976 is north of downtown on old Highway 98. When the Post Office was established, mail came to Clarksville, Texas and was transported by wagon and horseback to valliant. In 1903 the railroad took over the service and mail was brought to Valliant by train. Hope this helps you out some.
