What people are saying:

I had driven past Wawona many times but never knew about Pioneer Yosemite History Center just to the north. You start with a wagon shed with open sides and views of maybe two dozen wagon, coaches, and other animal powered vehicles. Also the Gray Barn where they hold square dances in the evening, but we were long along our way by then. Then you cross a covered bridge into an open area surrounded by about a dozen old historic buildings that had been moved here from the area. Most were closed, but there was an interpreter at the Wells Fargo telling about Wells Fargo freight (no bank yet), but was also Western Union telegraph and a phone switch board, although we were told it was probably faster to send a telegram than use the primitive telephone. There were two blacksmiths working in the Blacksmith shop making decorative items from old horse shoes. Since my camera messed up, we hope to return.
