Here is an old photo of the Paramount Cabins...




Were these the cabin's behind what was Chad's Place (and at some time Chad's Cabins)? I am thinking of that large parcel directly behind Chad's that had a lot of cabins...same place?

Kind Regards,
Warren

Waren they look like the cabins at the lodge West of Main St. East of Knickerbocker, South of the school. The type of siding on the first cabin looks right for the lodge, but the log cabin construction not sure. I do not remember any log cabins. Cricket has posted stuff in the past that she might know some knowledge of the lodge.

Those are the cabins at the Paramount Lodge. These cabins were the upgrades from the cabins that were there from Bartletts Camp. Chad's cabins were just west of these. These cabins were behind what is now O Koo Ran. In the 50's and 60's, the Paramount Lodge liked to cater to the movie industry.

These two images are from the 1960's. The office building is approx. where the Chamber Building is today. The rest is now the Bartlett parking lot.

Thanks so much, Y2KLL and SenorSausage! You have filled in the blanks on this for me...as late as 1972 I remember these cabins but was not sure if they were the old Paramount cabins in the pictures...at that time a Ms. Chapman was managing them, but they were mostly in various stages of disrepair. Her son, Mark, and I were High School friends, and although we were supposed to be cleaning and otherwise helping out, we mostly were eating Jumbo Jacks at Jack-in-the-Box and going to the movies. The Chapmans moved to Lone Pine in late '72...I never saw them again.

Thanks again for the great information!

Kind Regards,
Warren

As usual, Edison is trying to collect money when they haven't provided any electricity. No power since 9/9 and my bill ends 9/22 - they want the same amount of money as usual. Kiss my you know what Eddie!

The little truck with the dish on it is working pretty good for cell service but there is no Wi-Fi or Frontier internet. I'm burning through the data on my cell phone plan! And I'm stuck watching whatever TV I can find on antenna. No firestick 😒

I do have a generator - run it a few times a day for coffee, TV, phones, fridge and 1 light. A lot of people didn't come home yet because they don't have a generator or don't want to pay for the propane required for the whole house ones.

Hey KrazyKristin! Do you have generator power for your home?? I am surprised the power is still out. I guess a lot more infrastructure got compromised than I thought. Good to hear from you!

Still waking up to the gentle sound of generators here in the Dark Ages, aka Forest Falls. No one seems to know when power will be restored. Guess we're lucky to have homes left to power up huh?
