Black Point Settlment

Black Point was a community that developed around William Bihler's Landing, which was located on this bluff. After he became involved in the lumber business, Bilher built the landing for loading his timber products. The standing barn was the livery stable for the Black Point Hotel. The small structure may have been a sheepherder's cabin, but was not connected to the early settlement.
