1. Bissett Station Marker
Inscription.  Elick and Emma Bissett homesteaded 160 acres, 5 miles up Wawona-Sugar Pine Road from Oakhurst. Elick erected a house, stables and a small store.>br>
They stabled teams that hauled machinery and materials to Wawona and the Sugar Pine mill. Hearing the team's bells coming up the grade, Emma started cooking. The meal was ready by the time the teams were fed and bedded down.

The store remained in operation until 1934 when Highway 41 bypassed them. A chimney and several cedar trees mark the site of the old homestead.
Erected 2002 by Grub Gulch Chapter 41-49 E Clampus Vitus.
