Bridgeport, California's 19th Founder's Day will be a new experience this year!
Details coming soon
Between now and Labor Day continue to look for nuggets of our past, from Bridgeport and from each of local business and the history of the families that take pride in sharing them with you.
A little history:
Nestled high in the Eastern Sierra Mountains of California, Bridgeport became the Mono County Seat in 1864, a position most expected would have been given to the nearby, gold mining town of Bodie. Early settlers worked the lush meadow land in ranching before initially forming the town at “The Bridge” crossing over the East Walker River. When the gorgeous Mono County Courthouse (2nd oldest in operation in CA) was completed uptown in 1881, some businesses built anew nearby while some simply moved uptown. Eventually, Main Street changed course from cornering around the Courthouse to continuing straight along the distance of town. Visit during Founder's Day to learn more!
