California State Historic Landmark 132
Kernville, called Whiskey Flat until 1864, was founded in 1860 when Adam Hamilton,
whiskey dealer, moved shop here from more temperate Quartsburg, founded earlier that year. Both
camps resulted from the discovery of the Big Blue Ledge by "Lovely" Rogers while tracking a stray
mule from the earlier camp of Keyesville.
Old Kernville Cemetery, Wofford Rd, 2.7 mi SW of Kernville.
