Birthplace of Archie Stevenot
California State Historic Landmark 769
#769 To Honor
"Mr. Mother Lode"
He was born Sept. 25, 1882 on the old Stevenot homestead, one-half mile west of this marker. Son of Emile K. and Sarah E. Stevenot and the grandson of Gabriel K. Stevenot, Calaveras County pioneer who pitched tent there in April 1850.
Student, salesman, miner, rancher, post master, school board member and general superintendent of the nearby Carson Hill Mine, he has spent a productive lifetime in this region. He established the Mother Lode Highway Association in 1919, serving as president or director until 1950, when it joined into the Golden Chain Council. One of the organizers of the California State Chamber of Commerce. One of the organizers of Mother Lode Baseball League. A native son and one of the state's favorites, there is hardly an activity for the benefit of California and the Mother Lode with which he has not been identified.
To our Supreme Noble Grand Humbug of the Grand Council of E. Clampus Vitus, Inc., this marker is affectionately dedicated this 14th day of October, 1961.
