About Lower Lake
Historic Lower Lake is located at the southeastern end of Clear Lake where two major Native American trails crossed. Founded in the late 1850’s, the town soon became the center of commerce for the region.
The town features some of the oldest buildings in Lake County and prospered in early years from nearby mining of sulfur, borax and quicksilver. The first jail in Lake County, a stone structure of just one room, is said to be the smallest in the United States. It is California State Historical Landmark # 429.
Other notable historic sights in Lower Lake are the Pioneer and Lower Lake Cemeteries, the Odd Fellows Hall, built in 1868, and the United Methodist Church, built in 1884. A very popular Bluegrass Festival, featuring well known artists, is held each September at Anderson Marsh State Historic Park just north of Lower Lake. The Park features a ranch house, archaeological sites and nature trails.
Lower Lake offers a hometown shopping atmosphere with a variety of unique businesses, including a coffeeshop/cafe, wineries, and antique stores. In Lower Lake you can truly step back into rural America and “stroll around” enjoying history and shopping.
