California State Historic Landmark 98
From 1853 until 1870 Keyesville was a center of both placer and quartz gold
mining. On the knoll just below the townsite may still be seen the outlines of an earthwork
fort, built to meet a possible indian attack in 1868. The original Keyes mine is still active.
Black Gulch Rd, 2.0 mi S of Hwy 155 (PM 70.0), 3.3 mi W of Lake Isabella.
