The Lucerne Valley Museum Association passed on this invitation:

The Big Bear Valley Historical Society kindly invites the public on their field trips…

Tuesday, August 14, at 9:30 am, meet at the Barton Flats Visitor Center (909 794-4861), about an hour’s drive from Lucerne Valley and 22 miles from Big Bear City on CA-38 and before reaching Angeles Oaks.

Bring your lunch, drinks, and a folding chair, for the picnic lunch along the Santa Ana River. 4-wheel drive not necessary.

Tom Atchley leads this field trip. He will give a history of the area, then proceed to explore and talk about Jenks Meadow, Glass sawmill site, Serrano milling sites, San Bernardino Land, Timber, and Flume Company’s flume, Converse Forest Service Nursery, and Santa Ana Control Road Station Site. (Tom Atchley has lectured on how the San Bernardino Nat’l Forest came to be protected.)

After lunch, see Store Meadow and the real Barton Flats (three 1898 cabins built in Section 17) and Cienega Grade. If time permits, the group will visit the 1867 site of the Gus Knight Sr. sawmill on South Fork.

Bill Lembright says, “Sounds like a lot of fun and involves a LOT of history.” He should know since he explores everywhere in the San Bernardino mountains.
