We are presently developing a time line to prepare for and move the Sartori/Warta Cabin from its present location at 63 Lake Mary Road at the intersection of Canyon Blvd. to the site adjacent to the Mammoth Museum at the Hayden Cabin. Funding that we raise goes towards projects like this along with keeping the museum open during the summer season.
History of the Sartori/Warta Cabin
Joseph Sartori, founder of Security Bank built the cabin on the Valentine Reserve in the mid-1920’s. The cabin was offered to Jim Warta an electrician at the village who dismantled the cabin and moved it to the current location around 1972. It was used as the Mammoth Cable TV office at one time, but is now vacant.
The Warta family donated the cabin to the Southern Mono Historical Society when they sold the property, along with some funding, to begin fundraising efforts to move the cabin.
