AS THE CATTLE WERE DRIVEN FROM THE VALLEY TO THE RICH MOUNTAIN GRASSES IN THE SPRING AT A SITE NEARBY, TOM JONES SAW A NEED TO SUPPLY THE DROVERS WITH STAPLES AND SUPPLIES THAT WERE CONSUMED OR FORGOTTEN. AS IS TODAY, THE CATTLE DRIVES STILL CONTINUE AND THE DESCENDANTS CARRY ON THE TRADITION. WHEN BEASORE ROAD WAS BUILT IN 1936, A NEW WESTERN FRONT STORE WAS CONSTRUCTED AT THE PRESENT SITE. THAT STORE REPLACED IN 1954 BY THE PRESENT 2-STORY COUNTRY STORE.
LIKE A LINK TO THE PAST, THE OLD MANUAL GLOBE GAS PUMP IS STILL OUT
FRONT AND THE STORE HASN’T CHANGED. THIRD GENERATION FAMILIES AS WELL
AS NEWLY ACQUINTED FRIENDS, STILL PATRONIZE THE STORE AND CAMPGROUNDS.

A long standing tribute to the pioneers of yesterday, Jones Store is still providing to the drover and traveler alike today. Locals still look foreward to it’s opening, around July 4th each year(due to snow!!!) to travel up to the cooler climate and enjoy an outdoor lunch. Cattle is still run in the area the same as in the past. Located approx. 12 miles up Beasore Rd. from the Pines Village at Bass Lake. Not passable until mid-summer
