School History
John Ehrhardt was a sheep rancher, who as a young boy crossed the plains in 1852 to come to California. He was a driving force in the early agricultural days of northern California. Ehrhardt was a friend and companion of many early day Californians including the famed trapper and guide, Kit Carson. It is said that Ehrhardt met Kit Carson at Slough House in 1853 where he obtained from him two fine sheep dogs that were instrumental in his later success as a sheep rancher.
