Ham's Station
1880
 

It's 1880 and Ham's Station on the Amador-Nevada toll wagon road is one of the last stops before Silver Lake. Or if you're coming from Nevada, one of several stops before Pine Grove or Volcano. Ham's also served as a toll station on the road which was superintended for years by John Horsley. Note the sheep in the sketch from the 1881 Thompson & West History of Amador County. In those days, at Silver Lake and elsewhere, sheep seemed as plentiful as cattle in the lush, high Sierra meadows.
