Years ago the “Rock” was the center of attraction in Twain Harte. Located near the Twain Harte Lake Dam, the “Rock” is a huge expanse of granite and was given the name by the Twain Harte locals.
Due to the gold mines located around the area, people came and started to occupy the area; but once the craze of the quest for gold exhausted, the natural resources were targeted. Thus, the areas surrounding the “Rock” are filled with lumber mills and cattle ranches. Twain Harte is also where the base camp of the Mi-Wuk Indians was situated.
Carlo DeFerrari, a famous county historian, says Twain Harte is most likely the first private recreational subdivision in the Sierra Nevada district. Originally it was only seen as a summer retreat for families but now it has become a full fledged town in itself. But this fact does not take away the simplicity of the town.
