Recapturing Its Vibrant History

Since its humble beginnings, Upper Lake's strategic position drew an enterprising and hard working population. The town bustled with activity as the terminus for the Clear Lake and Cloverdale stage lines. Visitors to local resorts and hot springs might disembark to a head-splitting cacophony of saw mills, bleeting sheep, and tins shuffling on conveyor belts at the bean cannery.
Dense pine and fir forest to the north were the first of be exploited, and numerous lumber mills cropped up. Though a railway line was never built to connect Lake County with its neighbors, W.W. "Bull Pine" Prather constructed railroad tracks to transport timber to his mill where lumber box shook (parts for box-making) and moulding were produced in the 1920s on the north side of Elk Mountain. Today, quaint Main Street welcomes visitors as the southern gateway to the Mendocino National Forest.
