Mammoth Lakes in Mono County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The Mammoth Consolidated Gold Mine
Arch Mahan, the principal partner in this venture, then changed careers from mining to recreation when he purchased the resort and pack station at Red Meadow. He was prominent in the local tourist industry for the rest of his life. His career followed the trend that began in the early 1900’s as Mammoth’s scenic resources replaced mining as its major attraction and recreation became the base of the economy. Plaque dedicated July 1989
