In 1857 Galen Clark discovered the giant sequoias in Mariposa Groves. Mr. Clark persuaded President Lincoln to sign the Yosemite Grant protecting the groves as well as Yosemite Valley, and was therefore known for many years as the "Guardian of the Valley". This was the cabin Mr. Clark built to reside in amongst the breathtaking giant sequoia grove.
