Then – North Folk owes its accidental birth to Milton Brown, an ambitious businessman who saw Willow Creek's north fork as the perfect place to drop off sheep and cattle on their journey to higher summer pastures. Roads and lumber mills followed the traffic, giving North Fork a reputation in the milling industry until the Natural Forest discontinued timber harvesting.
Now – Today, its 3,892 residents are deep into plans for the town's promising future as an historic tourist site. It's already a gateway to the Sierra National Forest, the Sierra Vista National Scenic Byway, and the Scenic Route to Yosemite (as well as being located in the exact center of California), so adding a mill site to tour will only add strength to the area's tourism base.
Significant numbers of the of the population are Mono Indians, whose museum displays beautiful Mono Indian basketry as part of the peek at this town's past.
