Inscription. You are standing on the Lagomarsino Ranch, part of the historic town of Loganville. From 1852 until the early part of the 20th century, the Keystone, Marguerite and Cleveland mines, located nearby, determined the fortunes of Loganville residents.

The town boasted a school, a public hall, a general store and a brickyard. Nearby ranches like this one, provided an abundance of hay, fruit and vegetables. This site was originally part of the Cavure Placer Claims, located in 1855. The ditch that was part of the original mining claim was used to irrigate this ranch.

Many signs of this homestead are still visible.
 
Erected by Tahoe National Forest.
