Rebuilt Twain Cabin To Be Unveiled

Sponsored by:

One of Tuolumne County´s most prevalent historical landmarks has been restored and will be dedicated on February 23rd.

The newly rebuilt Mark Twain cabin will officially be unveiled during a ceremony at the cabin off of Highway 49 on Jackass Hill Road. The work was done under the umbrella of a Centennial Project by the Sonora Sunrise Rotary. Samuel Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, stayed in the cabin with some cronies during the winter of 1865-66.

He took his experiences and turned them into literature, including stories he had heard about Calaveras County´s famous jumping frog. The project was overseen by Sonora Rotarian Jerry Kahl (K-ell).
