In 1860’s “Tim” B. Malan found a mountain basin containing a spring and timber. By 1868, he was selling logs, using his roller invention to get them safely down the cliff. July 1892, Tim and sons finished making a road with pick and shovel; later hewed a switch-back road, built a home and hotel. Guests came in spring wagons to enjoy Aunt Loui’s cooking, play various games or watch activities in town through a powerful telescope. Malan Heights is seen southeast of this marker.
