Southern Mono Historical Society - The Historian

The Mammoth Lakes Museum is a house in the original form of a 1920's log cabin in which Jorge and I went to today. Upon speaking to the worker there we where in awwwww of it's history and sad to learn that this wonderful piece of history is in great need of support. The location of this really rustic cabin is kind of hidden from the world and is a wonderful place to have a quite picnic along side a quiet creek in which we came across fly fishing hopefuls. The museum contains many artifacts from that periods of the 20's with lots of photographs and displays. The museum is operated under a special use permit from the Inyo National Forest and depends on local support of Mammoth Lakes business. Here is a list of upcoming events in which to partake to show your support. The log cabin was built by Emmett Hayden hence the Hayden Museum name. He was a map maker for the Eastern Sierra (my husband is a map freak - I can barely read one).

I loved going here - we walked from Old Shady Campground to here and just loved it there - there are many bike/hike trails near by and the Stove Restaurant is a great place to have lunch in which we did..... I didn't take my camera because I've filled up my SD cards from all the pictures I have been taking like crazy - Rite Aid is sold out and until they get there shipment in you'll have to read my fun in words....

The credit for the picture comes from:


  1. I had no idea there was so much to see. I guess I related the area more to winter activities.

  2. I am thinking you could make up a flyer, Evie, and put it up in all Jorge's campgrounds to steer people to the museum, thereby, they make a donation!!!! Just a thought. Glad you had a good time and history is knowledge and power. Pretty cool.

  3. I wish I could the Forst Service would not approve it. But a super idea - I'll still make the flyer and place it around town - that's a great idea and I kind am a duah that I didn't think of it. They even gave me a flyer to post on the blog. A blondafide moment - I guess
