The new owner will be in the unique position of being able to conserve for perpetuity a big section of land originally intended to be part of Yosemite National Park, while also being in the enviable position of having a house in a national park.
When John Muir envisioned the original boundaries for Yosemite National Park, he included the lands of the Yosemite Lumber Company, on the western ridge above the Merced River, just south of the town of El Portal. When the lumber company objected, the final 1906 boundary established for Yosemite National Park skirted these holdings.
The O’Conner family bought this land from the Lumber Company and managed it as a guest ranch. Upon Mr. O’Conner’s death, the land was divided between three O’Conner children. In the 1970s a portion of the property was sold to developers who created a residential community called Yosemite West. The Pacific Forest Trust bought the remaining O’Conner tracts in 2005 to prevent their subdivision and development, protecting them and the Park. Over the last 15 years, the Pacific Forest Trust has stewarded the properties to enhance their outstanding natural qualities.
