Mount Bullion in Mariposa County, CA is a discontinued post office that was in operation from 1862 to 1955.

The town was first named La Mineta (for little mine). Then it was called Princeton for the Princeton Mine nearby. Finally, the name Mount Bullion was applied in honor of Senator Thomas Hart Benton, whose nickname was "Old Bullion" due to his fiscal policies.
