DISCOVER HIDDEN HISTORY in Markleeville, California!
There’s plenty of great but largely HIDDEN history here in this tiny Sierra town -- and this video takes you there, starting with sites atop Schoolhouse Hill!
The town of Markleeville was born in 1861, during the silver mining excitement of the nearby Comstock Lode. Think dusty silver miners and bustling supply trains, dancing hurdy girls and elbow-to-elbow saloons.
Today you can still discover plenty of HIDDEN history in this fun historic town -- from the original log jail to its 1883 schoolhouse (there’s even a bullet hole in the school wall!) But to find them, you need a good guide.
This video’s a great start -- and a fun visual visit for history lovers, following our BOOK: “A Walking Tour of Markleeville.”

Next time you visit Markleeville in person, be sure to stop in and visit the thoroughly cool Alpine Museum, too -- Open 10 to 4, Thursday through Sunday, Memorial Weekend through the last weekend of October.
