Notes
Survey number HAER CA-145-1-A
Building/structure dates: 1916 initial construction
Significance: Building 102 Control Station (formerly Operations Building #1, Control Station) was constructed as the first operations building at the control station for the Bishop Creek Hydroelectric System in the eastern Sierra Nevada. The building is significant both for its role in the early history of the Bishop Creek System, and as an example of the Mission Revival style building in a hydroelectric complex. 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.
