18.1. Why It's Worth a Photograph

The Pioneer Yosemite History Center is made up of a collection of historic structures from different eras of Yosemite's history and commemorates the people and stories of those early pioneers. These buildings came from various locations in the park and each represents a different time and story in Yosemite's past. Some of the structures include a covered bridge, pioneer cabins, a Wells Fargo office, a blacksmith shop, and a ranger patrol cabin, to name a few. A working stagecoach gives tours in the area and makes an interesting photographic subject. You can find many great photographic opportunities within the History Center, from the structures, wagons, and horses to the docents that perform demonstrations.
