Bend City is a former settlement in Inyo County, California.[1] It was located on the Owens River near the modern-day town of Kearsarge.[1] Founded in the 1863, Bend City was originally a mining camp.[1] Bend City was the site of the first county bridge spanning the Owens River.[1] The 1872 Lone Pine earthquake changed the course of the river away from the townsite, which had already declined.[1] The site is now registered as California Historical Landmark #209.[2]
