Dog Town

1857

Site of the first major gold rush to California's eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada. Dog Town derived its name from a popular miner's term for camps with huts or hovels. Ruins lying close to the cliff bordering Dog Town Creek are all that remain of the makeshift dwellings which here formed part of the "Diggins."

California Registered Historical Landmark No. 792

Plaque placed by the California State Park Comission in cooperation with the Mono County Department of Parks and Recreation and the Mono County Historical Society, September 11, 1966.
