Upper Yellow Jacket Hoist Work

The Upper Yellow Jacket Hoist would not have survived the winter winds without the restoration effort of the Comstock Foundation for History and Culture. The photo underneath is what the Upper Yellow Jacket Hoist looked like in August 2013. The fact that it remained standing proves that the law of gravity is sometimes suspended on the Comstock. The fact that we could save it proves that while we should have known better than to try, it’s good that we didn’t know better.

You can help the Foundation transform historic sites like the Yellow Jacket Hoist Work.
