Yankee Hill
Est. 1856

This is the area of the original historic site of old Yankee Hill. It was first founded as a gold mining town: having in later years a hotel, general store, school, Wells Fargo, post office, saloon and a winery.

Yankee Hill was purchased by the Smiths in the 1940's and later destroyed by numerous fires.

Dedicated in memory of the late Skeet and Skeeter Smith and the pioneers before them by Florence and Rosie Smith.
