Knights Ferry in Stanislaus County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Ancient and Honorable Order of E Clampus Vitus
Referred to as Clampers, our principal objective is the preservation of our historical heritage and perpetuation of interest in our area. Monuments are erected to commemorate events in the chronicles of our past. Scholarships are awarded to history majors of local schools and charitable work is performed for local entities.
On this our golden anniversary we honor Knights Ferry, the citizens of the area, the Historic Tulloch Flour Mill, and California's longest covered bridge.
