[Larger Marker]:
Started 1848 by soldiers of Colonel Stevenson's Regiment. Named by miners because of apparent volcanic appearance. Here the first California rental library, 1850, was established. And one of the first "Little Theaters" founded by the "Volcano Thespian Society", 1854
Interesting Civil War History.

[Smaller Marker]:
Volcano - Right Here!
1934 plaque placed in Pine Grove as "obituary" when planned dam would flood Volcano. Geology & water rights negated plan. So Volcano didn't drown
NOT BY A DAM SITE!

Dedicated July 5, 1980, Volcano Business & Professional Association, James W. Marshall Chapter 49, E. Clampus Vitus, Upcountry 88 Lions
