History & History Related Items

Lone Pine history:

Lone Pine's history dates from the mid 1800's. It has a large tourist trade with the close proximity of Mt Whitney (14,497 Feet) the tallest peak in the contiguous US.
Lone Pine was named for a single pine tree which stood at the mouth of Lone Pine Canyon. The tree was "drowned" in a flood years ago. Originally, Lone Pine provided supplies to the local mining communities and then to farmers and ranchers in the area.

Mt Whitney was first discovered in 1864 by a survey team. The peak was named by the team after Josiah Whitney, a Professor at the California Academy of Sciences. They unsuccessfully attempted to climb the mountain. It was appropriately scaled for the first time by three local men in 1873. Check this Mt. Whitney history page for more information.
