The History of Big Bear Lake.

Modern Big Bear history begins in 1845 as Benjamin Davis Wilson rode into the Yuhaviat Valley with a posse of 20 men. They were searching for outlaws who had been raiding their ranches in Riverside and as they entered this remote region, they found it was teeming with Grizzly Bears.
In 1869, a hunter named William Holcomb discovered gold in the backcountry of Big Bear after tracking an animal’s blood trail to Creek, he found it sparkling with little gold flakes. Word soon spread, the area became populated with prospectors and Southern California's gold rush began!
Because of marshy meadowlands in the center of the valley, a dam was constructed in 1884 forming a man-made reservoir for irrigating citrus crops in Redlands. In 1912 a larger dam was built to increase the water capacity of what would become known as Big Bear Lake.
