El Dorado County tax receipt for Swans Toll Road in Strawberry Valley. The road was appraised at $44,065.00 and the tax was $4189.75. It ran east from the Western Summit Toll House to the valley; a distance of ten miles. Elliot Lord [Comstock Mining and Miners, Volume 4] estimated the yearly revenue for this toll road to be about $2,000 to $3,000 a mile. The receipts from the toll house and road were $40,000 to $70,000 yearly!!! Today it is a hiking trail. In other words, if you wanted to get from Placerville to Nevada, you took this road and paid this toll! (Potter Collection) Date: 1864 Location: Strawberry Valley, California HWAC# 58374
