Impressive Granite Cliffs
The impressive Granite Cliffs are called “Centennial Bluff”, standing majestically tall on the west side of Highway 395, here in Coleville California. They are the site of a historical event that occurred on July 4th, 1876. A traditional Independence Day celebration was carried out with a picnic of homemade treats, challenging games, and crackling fireworks. The highlight of the event that would make history, was when three men, Wood Larsen, John Connell, and Mr. Cole carried a locust pole to the summit, anchored it firmly in a crevice and raised the American Flag.
