#029 Volcano
Started 1848 by soldiers of Colonel Stevenson's regiment. Named by miners because of apparent volcanic appearance. Here the first California rental library, 1850, was established, and one of the first "little theaters" founded by the "Volcano Thespian Society", 1854.
Interesting Civil War history.
