Yosemite Lumber Company at Merced Falls Exhibit

Education

Once the Yosemite Lumber Company was established in 1911, Merced Falls became the industrial center of our farming county. A little over 40 years later, the demise of the mill turned a thriving community into a ghost town. Today, nothing remains but crumbling foundations. This photo exhibit documents the community life and business operations of Merced Falls and its connected logging camps. In addition, a digital mapping display reconstructs the infrastructure of the sawmill and the living quarters. The exhibit will run through June 10.
