#939 Old Trapper's Lodge
Old Trapper's Lodge is one of California's remarkable twentieth century folk art environments. It represents the life work of John Ehn (1897-1981), a self-taught artist who wished to pass on a sense of the old west, derived from personal experiences, myths, and tall tales. From 1951 to 1981, using his family as models, and incorporating memorabilia , the "Old Trapper" followed his dreams and visions to create the lodge and its "Boot Hill."
