Event Details

The Mono Basin Historical Society's 9th Annual Ghosts of the Sagebrush Tour will feature the history of Lee Vining.  Tour ticket includes lunch at Bodie Mike's Restaurant.  Ninety years ago, in 1922, Chris Mattly bought land then known as “Poverty Flat” and, by 1926, had subdivided lots for a town that became Lee Vining. Today, some of the oldest buildings in Lee Vining house the Mono Market, the El Mono Motel, Nicely's and Bodie Mike's Restaurants, the Mono Lake Committee Information Center, the Mattly residence, and the community's two churches. The Ghosts of the Sagebrush walking tour will visit those and other places and include photo displays and talks by old-timers about the history of Lee Vining.
