Mammoth Museum at the Hayden Cabin Now Open!

Mammoth Museum at The Hayden Cabin Now Open

The Hayden Cabin/Mammoth Museum is housed in the original 1920’s log cabin built by Emmett Hayden, map maker of the Eastern Sierra. It contains many artifacts from that period as well as historic photographs and displays.

This four room log cabin has many original furnishings that decorate the kitchen and living room. There are two rooms of the depression era Hayden Cabin, authentically decorated with original hand made furnishings, photos, maps, trophies, and other personal belongings. Emmett was a noted map maker. The Hayden Map Company was the first commercial enterprise dedicated to making maps in the Eastern Sierra. The Hayden’s spent summers in Mammoth Lakes and winters in Glendale in southern California.

The museum is located in a park-like setting beside the meandering waters of Mammoth Creek. This is the perfect spot to enjoy a picnic and reflect on times past when the pace of life was just a little slower.

There are many special events and programs scheduled this season at the Museum, so please visit our website for more details and information.  There are several large projects to undertake at the Hayden Cabin.  Donations made on the website, either in general, or for a specific project are extremely helpful and very much appreciated to keep the cabin in good shape and the museum going for all to enjoy.

    Such a wonderful museum full of local history. A hidden gem right in the heart of town! I served on the Southern Mono Historical Society for 5 years and have been a member for many more. Did you know that members receive a 10% discount in the museum gift shop? Check out their website and stop by this summer.
