In 1852 a chain cable bridge replaced the ferries that once crossed here, to be supplanted in its turn by a covered truss structure in 1862. Some writers claimed this was the locale of Bret Harte's Poker Flat. In late "49" there was a large camp here, with miners washing gold out on both banks of the Stanislaus River.
