Arrey Memories

A group of former students of the Arrey School system and other Arrey residents get together annually to enjoy one another’s company and reminisce. This video looks in on one of their reunions. The participants discuss school in Arrey and Hot Springs, roads being built with a mule team between Arrey (once known as El Bonito), Hatch, and Fort Thorn, and other memories of the old days.


This video offers a list of the cemeteries in Sierra County and includes directions to their sites. Also included are some descriptions of the notable and notorious people buried around the area.
