Strawberry today is a small ranching settlement that was first established shortly after The White Pine boom. The pride of Strawberry’s owners was the 12,000-tree orchard and huge fields of strawberries. The produce was shipped by four-horse wagons to Eureka and Hamilton. A post office was active at Strawberry from 1899 to 1938. The original post office burned in 1917 and the office was moved into the ranch house. The ranch is still active and original buildings including a large stone barn with juniper beams of immense proportions remain.
