The History Mystery #2 – February 2013

Like the January History Mystery, the photograph below came from the John Hughes collection. In 1920, John Hughes was the trail crew supervisor for the Sierra National Forest.

It may be that this photograph is somewhere on today’s Road 200, but the structure, location and ownership has not been determined. Is it a hotel or a residence? Where is it located? Does it still exist?
