Notes
Survey number HAER CA-145-4-A
Building/structure dates: 1909 initial construction
Significance: Building 102 Plant 4 (formerly Cottage, Building No. 1, Plant 4), a small bungalow cottage, is a rare, surviving example of early worker's housing at the Bishop Creek Hydroelectric System. Built in 1905, Plant 4 was the first on the Bishop Creek System, and it remains the system's operating headquarters. This house is one of the four earliest cottages built for employees at Plant 4. The Bishop Creek System is considered significant for its role: (1) in the expansion of hydroelectric generation technology, (2) in the development of eastern California, and (3) in the development of long-distance power transmission and distribution.
