Thanks to the marvelous research conducted by Dr. Tandy Bozeman and with appreciation for support to the National Park Service and Lassen Volcanic National Park, Marilyn Parris, Superintendent, and special thanks to the UC Davis Special Collections, John Skarstad, Archivist, for authorization to publish the Eastman photographs in the University collection, the current stewards of Drakesbad Guest Ranch are happy to host this marvelous archive of historic photos and commentary.
The life long desire of every person is to see one's vision come to pass and to share the wonder with others. The Sifford legacy at Drakesbad was passed on to the National Park Service and it continues to this day.
To the many guests that have stayed at Drakesbad over the years, we ask only one thing more as you view this site: search your old photo albums and especially that shoebox in the closet. We are looking for more photos that show the detail of the buildings and structures as they have evolved over the years. Your submittal will be credited and used for the education, research and archival purpose of this work. The National Park Service has agreed to scan or reproduce any photo submitted that you would like returned. They, of course, are also willing to be the archive for historic photos and other Drakesbad artifacts that may be donated to the Park Museum Collection.
