Community Information

Those of us who already live here, in the Yosemite area and Mariposa, do so for a number of reasons. Some of us have had the pleasure of calling Mariposa "home" since birth, and others have only recently arrived. The natural beauty of the Yosemite area and the Sierra Nevada mountains, including the world-famous Yosemite National Park and the lower foothill areas are only a part of why we all have come to love Mariposa. Our slower pace of life and our ability to keep apart from some of the "big city" problems makes Mariposa County an ideal place to raise just about everything, from your family to your garden to your hopes. You will surely have your own reasons after a short while. Join us, we'd love to call you "neighbor"!
