Lone Pine’s history is as dramatic and violent as the magnificent landscape in which the town is located.  Long before the first white settlers arrived during the Gold Rush, small groups of Piute-Shoshone Indians lived in the area.  With the discovery of Gold and silver, miners and ranchers supplying food for the mines came into violent conflict with the native inhabitants between 1860 and 1865.  In the 1870s, the Cerro Gordo mines (the largest silver strike in the state) buoyed the growth of Los Angeles.  At the turn of the century, the City of Los Angeles clandestinely bought up land and water rights and initiated a period of conflict with the Owens Valley.  In the 1920’s Hollywood discovered the Sierra Nevada Mountains and high deserts of the area. Over 500 films and countless commercials have been filmed in Lone Pine, featuring such stars as John Wayne, Gene Autry, Errol Flynn, Tyrone Power, Rita Hayworth, Barbara Stanwick and Brad Pitt.
