First settled as a camp in 1861 it was named after a single Jeffrey pine and is the largest unincorporated community in Inyo County. Settlers of so many wonderful nationalities moved in such as Mexican families and Welsh and Cornish immigrants. Sadly, the 1872 earthquake did its worst damage to Lone Pine because so many of the homes were of adobe construction they crumbled terribly. Many died and are buried just north of town. A California Historical Marker graces it to honor those lost. Lone Pine is obviously a principal commercial center for this area since most of the commercial retail in the central part of town right along U.S. Highway 395. This strip still boast a wonderful old world western feel. Most of the storefronts have kept their historical storefronts giving the town wonderful quaint home towns feel. The locals are all so friendly and helpful. Sidewalks are wide and there is on the street parking and there is a stoplight in the middle of town to slow down the traffic so you can cross the streets safely, but be cautious for the occasional brain dead tourist who is just passing through.
Every October since 1990, the Lone Pine Film Festival includes movies, arts and craft shows, and tours of movie locations in the nearby Alabama Hills.
