Mammoth's famous gold mining boom began in 1877 and ended abruptly in 1881 when the Mammoth Mining Company's property was sold at a sheriff's sale. Miners have contributed to prospect and mine Red Mountain on a small scale to this day. In 1927 the Mammoth Consolidated Mining Company began the last significant mining operation here. The Great Depression and bank failure contributed to its closing in 1933.

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
