1. The Livery Stable Marker
Inscription.  This was one of three livery stables in Upper Lake in the 1880's. As far back as 1870, Upper Lake was the terminus of both the Cloverdale and Clearlake stage lines, bringing tourists to the famous mineral waters of Witter Springs, Saratoga Springs and the Blue Lake resorts.

Before Highway 20 went through in the late 1920's, the Bartlett Springs-Colusa Road connected Lake County to the Sacramento Valley. Highway 20 was originally called the Tahoe-Ukiah Route.

Because of the terrain, old photos of stage coaches in Lake County usually show six horse teams rather than four horse teams of neighboring areas.
