Francesco Cafiso, originally from Catania, Sicily spent most of his youth in Milan, Italy and later in France. There he started his artistic career as a song writer and guitarist. It was later after an accident while touring Europe that his life changed course. Intrigued by the art of mosaic he returned to Italy to study with the Maestro Tagliatti. He spent years restoring classic works in Italy and Northern Africa. In 1997 he returned to France where he opened his first gallery with his wife Kristina Della Valle in Evian Les Bains.
Constantly drawn to the reflective and luminescent qualities of glass he started experimenting with reverse painting techniques and, over time, developed a technique of his own.

This magnificent two-story, three-room, schoolhouse was built in 1877 from locally kilned brick, had a French roof, a 70 foot bell tower, served as the area school until 1935, and today is designated as a California Point of Historical Interest. The upstairs auditorium was used for town meetings, funerals, traveling shows and other social events. The bell tower was damaged in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and was removed, and the roof then restyled from French to Mansard, with the building then covered with a thick layer of stucco.

Visitors can see history come alive on living history days, when people dressed in period costume demonstrate pioneer implements such as the spinning wheel, treadle sewing machine, butter churn, and player piano.

Benjamin Ely and his family purchased the S-Bar-S Ranch in 1882 and, over the years, expanded the ranch to include farming operations, commercial corrals, a two-story hotel, post office, and general store. The Ely Stage Stop became a relay station for stagecoaches, offering drivers a place to change horses while passengers enjoyed a meal. Today, after a relocation in 2007 and careful restoration, the Ely Stage Stop and Country Museum offers visitors from all over the world an opportunity to learn about Lake County's agricultural heritage.
