Dunmovin (formerly, Cowan Station)[2] is an unincorporated community in Inyo County, California.[1] It is located 4.8 km (3 mi) north of Coso Junction and 21.6 km (13.5 mi) south-southeast of Olancha, at an elevation of 3507 feet (1069 m).[1]

A post office operated at Dunmovin from 1938 to 1941.[2] The place was originally called Cowan Station in honor of homesteader James Cowan.[2] Cowan Station was a freight station for silver ingots being transported from the Cerro Gordo Mines to Los Angeles. When Cowan sold out in 1936, the name was changed to Dunmovin.[2] It was a roadside service station, cafe, and store along U.S. Route 395.
