Creating a Sierra Paradise: In February 1958, Harvey West, Sr. purchased the remains of the California Fruit Exchange Lumber Mill site. The property included 13,482 acres of timberland and a town with some 42 deserted buildings plus several stores and food supply buildings. Harvey West, Jr. and his wife Shirley moved to Graeagle and took up permanent residence. Harvey had a plan and a dream to create an ideal community for recreation and retirement homes. Dan West, the son of Harvey and Shirley, grew up with the town. Dan will tell the story of how the town grew as he helped his father realize that dream. If you love Graeagle, don't miss this presentation.This event is free, though a $5.00+ donation is welcome to help fund MCRC. Light refreshments will be served.
