Notes
Survey number HAER CA-145-6-A
Significance: Although greatly modified, the 19th Century Cashbaugh-era structures combined into Building 102 are reputed to be the oldest surviving houses in the Owens Valley. The Cashbaugh/Kilpatrick house's significance lies in its association with the early ranching history of the Owens Valley and the pioneering generation of electrical energy on Bishop Creek. 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.
