Bridgeport, CA - Mono County Courthouse

The Mono County Courthouse in Bridgeport, California. Mono County was created on April 21, 1861, as the first California mining county on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada. The county seat was established at Aurora, but a state boundary survey in 1863 revealed that Aurora lay in the Nevada Territory, three miles from the California border. The presiding judgeimmediately shut down the courthouse in Aurora and decreed that no more cases could be tried there.

Mono County voters selected Bridgeport as their new county seat. In 1880, this Italianate courthouse was completed. Photo by Carol Highsmith, 2012.
