HISTORICAL MAPS OF YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK AND YOSEMITE VALLEY 1850 to 1915

by
William and Mary Hood

The following data comprises a backcountry survey conducted by the Hoods in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Many of the structures are no longer standing. The Hoods concentrated primarily on roads, trails, and various structures and did not note such resources as blazes, logging camps, or railroad grades. The survey does, however, provide useful information on properties with visible remains ca. 1964. (The spelling and abbreviations of the original document have been retained for the most part.)

sideways rectangle with a T Telegraph Lines
sideways rectangle with a P and T Telegraph and telephone lines constructed at approximately same time

1. Sonora-Yosemite Telegraph line. First service May 25th, 1872, but abandoned after 1874. Constructed by H. L. Street.

2. Telegraph Line Berenda—Grants Sulphur Springs—Wawona Yosemite. Constructed by Western Union 1882.

3. A temporary telephone line from El Portal to Yos. V was installed in 1907 by Yos. Trans Co., Yos Terminal Hotel Co., and Mr. Cook of Sentinel Hotel to facilitate reservations. Government also used it. In 1908 Pac. T & T constructed both telephone and telegraph lines connecting Yosemite with outside world via El Portal and Merced Canyon.
