Yosemite Village is a popular unincorporated community in Mariposa County, California. It is located twenty-seven miles north-east of Mariposa, at an elevation of 3996 feet.
Yosemite Village is the primary human habitation in Yosemite Valley. Situated along the far north side of the valley floor, its permanent population includes NPS staff and some park concession workers. The Village is the site of some important facilities, such as a fire station, and the post office (ZIP Code - 95389), a medical clinic, a park tourist general store, local restaurants, many gift shops, and the park's headquarters and main large visitor center. The Yosemite Lodge is located on the west end of the village near the Yosemite Falls. The famous Ahwahnee Hotel is a few blocks to the north. Like the busy and popular Camp Curry, Yosemite Village is characterized by the old building shed style architecture making significant use of local native woods.
In 1869 the Yo Semite post office opened, changed its name to just the single name "Yosemite" in 1908, and to the final Yosemite National Park in 1922. In 1906, Major Benson started the Fort Yosemite at the famous site of what became the Yosemite Lodge. U.S. Troops and horse cavalry were stationed at Fort Yosemite until 1916, with the creation of the new National Park Service.
