^ Fun was had! The Prez of our historical society drove his restored (had it since high school) TR3, towing a trailer and a replica of an old Mammoth City row boat with his wife and Ol' Charlie in it. Unfortunately due to the load and the slow procession, the TR3 overheated almost immediately, but we limped to the finish, parked it along Main Street, then walked back to watch the rest of the parade (we were the 4th entry at the beginning). We had a lot of positive feedback from our entry and we were excited and proud that it was the first time ever the Southern Mono Historical Society representing the Mammoth Museum at the Hayden Cabin had been in the 4th of July parade!

Fun pics SL. I swear I've met up with Charlie some where in life.
Seriously we went last year to the Hayden Cabin and was very cool. The gentleman with the Georgia accent was helpful.
Worth the visit :y:
Do they ever have a fiddle fest or some Bluegrass events?

Glad to hear you stopped in at the museum last year. You should return since we've cleaned it up, changed it up some and have new exhibits this year, plus we hired two new lovely female Docents. Not sure who the "gentleman with the Georgia accent" was since our past Docent doesn't have any accent nor do any of our male volunteers?

We're hoping to host a bluegrass event next summer so I'll keep you posted. The President of our Board plays a mean fiddle and usually jams with whatever bands play at the cabin.

He's going to be playing with Joe Gray tomorrow afternoon for our big fundraising event of the summer. Joe and has group are the warm up band to our headliner event, Tom Rigney and Flambeau (electric fiddle) who play in the evening after dinner.

^^^ He said he came out here from Georgia and was blown away by how beautiful it was. He never went back. Did say it was a bit colder than he was used to.
Either way very much worth the visit.

WOW...what a nice crowd last Saturday night! Thanks to all who turned out to make our first ever Pioneer Party in conjunction with our annual general membership meeting such a success! It was wonderful to see so many members there who either had already renewed or renewed that evening and to acquire so many new members as well. Our food vendors served some delicious eats, many mixology choices at the bar and the band, Bodie 601, highlighted a wonderful evening with their beautiful voices and talent on their instruments. Thank you again to everyone who supports maintaining Mammoth's history and the Mammoth Museum!

Want to learn how to fly-fish for free? Come to our free clinic this Saturday, 8/27 at 10:30 a.m. at the Hayden Cabin!

FLY-FISHING - THEN AND NOW

It would have been hard to catch a trout in the High Sierra two hundred years ago, since most of the lakes and streams above 6000' had no fish. Things changed in the mid-1800's, when western settlers and miners moved native trout upstream into fishless areas to create a food source. Later, a variety of groups (including the Bishop Fish Planting Club, Sierra Club and U.S. Army) began stocking high altitude lakes and streams with trout for recreational fishing.

The improvement of state highways in the Roaring Twenties (including El Camino Sierra, or Highway 395) paved the way - literally - for auto tourism. Mammoth Lakes and the Eastern Sierra became a popular destination for anglers. During this time, the Alpers Owens River Ranch was converted into a fishing ranch and Emmett Hayden, a civil engineer from Pasadena, began constructing a fishing lodge along the banks of Mammoth Creek - the place we now know as the Mammoth Museum at the Hayden Cabin.

To celebrate Emmett's love of fly-fishing, the Southern Mono Historical Society is offering a free fly-fishing clinic, open to everyone aged 10 and up. Taught by local angler Dave Harvey of The Troutfitter and Troutfly, the clinic takes place on Saturday, August 27, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. along Mammoth Creek at the Hayden Cabin. Fly rods will be available for use.

8/27/16 Turns out only two folks showed up for the free fly-fishing clinic at the Hayden Cabin this morning. One gentleman read about it in the Mammoth Times and the other participant was Sue, our historical society President's wife! Temps were perfect and they both enjoyed casting on the lawn and learning the tricks of the sport. We'd like to thank Dave Harvey, a licensed and bonded fly fishing guide with The Troutfitter for taking time out of his day to show some enthusiastic participants how to cast a fly rod.

Thanks again to Dave Harvey (son of one of our Trustees-at-Large on our Board, David Harvey) for your expertise and time. If you would like to learn how to fly fish or need an experienced guide, contact Dave at The Troutfitter or call him at (760) 937-2234 or email him at davesgonefishing760@gmail.com.

MAMMOTH STORYTELLING FESTIVAL, Saturday, 9/24/16, noon-4:00 p.m.

Across the country, the popularity of storytelling is growing - with Storytelling Festivals springing up in every region. The Mammoth Museum at Hayden Cabin is catching this wave of interest as it presents the first Mammoth Storytelling Festival on Saturday, September 24, 2016.

In today's wired world, responding to the human voice is becoming a lost art. By presenting engaging "Tales of the Sierra," along the banks of Mammoth Creek, the Mammoth Museum hopes to transport its audience to a less hectic time. A time when families sit together and enjoy spoken entertainment suitable for all ages. A time when yarns from the past are as fun as Pokémon Go. With the Sherwin Range towering in the distance, this event at the new “Temple of Folly” tent on the museum grounds will present tall tales and music next to quaking autumn aspens. Since the event is sponsored by the Southern Mono Historical Society (operators of the Mammoth Museum), you can be sure there will an historical spin.

This “all-ages” festival begins at noon on September 24, 2016 and will continue until 4:00 p.m. A group of talented local storytellers have volunteered to share their unique and amusing tales. The requested donation is $10.00 per adult ($5.00 per child) and there will be a break for sweet treats and a musical interlude around 2:00 p.m. This event is part of Outside on the Eastside -a colorful fall celebration of arts, culture and recreation. Also, this is the closing weekend for the Mammoth Museum, so it will be the last chance for visitors to see the current museum exhibits before the Spring 2017 reopening.

The Hayden Cabin is located at 5489 Sherwin Creek Road. Look for the “Museum” sign on the east side of the road just before The Station/Sierra Meadows Ranch. Parking is limited at the museum, so guests are encouraged to enter on foot from the north by crossing the bridge over Mammoth Creek from the Town Loop multi-use trail at Mammoth Creek Park East. Come prepared for variable weather. If you would like more information, please call (760) 934-6918 or email lesleybruns@outlook.com. Join the Mammoth Museum in celebrating fall colors and tall tales on Saturday, September 24th at the inaugural Mammoth Storytelling Festival!
