After bringing the first tourists to Yosemite Valley, James Hutchings established Hutchings House in 1864. Using the boardinghouse know-how of his mother-in-law, he and his wife launched a career as Yosemite innkeepers. Hutchings was a gracious host, whose charm made up for the lack of amenities in his hotel.

Pioneer and Entrepreneur
James Hutchings built a family cabin directly in view of Yosemite Falls. It was located adjacent to the apple orchard he planted across the way, which still bears fruit after 150 years. Here, his family raised produce and livestock to feed the hotel guests. Where you are standing now, a smoke house once cured meat.
