Stone Fences & Corrals in the South Central Sierra Nevada Foothills

October 20, 2007

A Living History Exhibit As many of us drive on scenic Hwy 120/108 through Oakdale traveling towards Tuolumne, Calaveras and Mariposa counties, we see the beautiful historic rock fences and corrals that grace the foothills. Corral Knights Ferry, CA Who built these? Why were they built? And how did they find all those rocks? You’ll find the answers to these questions in the research documentation and gorgeous photographs that encompass the beauty and uniqueness of this living history exhibit. A special thanks to exhibit curators, Twainhart Hill and Sharon Getchel, who spent the past twelve months and countless hours interviewing the many ranching families in four counties and learned the stories that have been passed down generations from the early settlers. The Oakdale Cowboy Museum’s recent exhibit of the Stone Fences & Rock Corrals of the Southern Sierra Foothills, opened on October 20, 2007 and ran successfully through May 31, 2008. In September of 2008 through May of 2009, this exhibit was on display at the Tuolumne County Historical Society Museum in Sonora.
