Yreka in Siskiyou County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Moonlit Oaks Dance Pavilion / Clyde Johnson Lynching
Moonlit Oaks Open Air Dance Platform
Opened, hosting dances most Saturday
Nights. Pints of illicit spirits were obtained.
From the man in the parking lot with the
Many-pocketed long black overcoat. In
Those days, dancing was a major social and
Entertainment event. World War II and post
War lifestyle changes brought an end to the
Grand age of open air dance pavilions, and
The demise of Moonlit Oaks.
Erected 2012 by E Clampus Vitus, Humbug Chapter 73 & Umpqua Joe Outpost 1859.
