Iron Door Saloon

Search Groveland California

The Historic Iron Door Saloon, near Yosemite Village National Park, was built in the California Gold Country sometime before 1852. It was first called the "Granite Store", perhaps because the front and back walls are made of solid granite blocks. The sidewalls are made of "shist" rock and mortar and the roof consists of three feet of sod, covered by tin.
