Notes
Survey number HAER CA-145-4-E
Significance: Building 16, Plant 4 (formerly Building No. 7 Plant 4), a small Craftsman Style cottage, is the oldest permanently built residence at Plant 4. Its significance lies in its contribution to an understanding of the historic character of the physical and social environment of the Plant 4 compound. Built in 1905, Plant 4 was the first on the Bishop Creek System, and it remains the system's operating headquarters. 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.
