The name "Inyo" comes from a Native American word meaning "dwelling place of the great spirit." It was used by local Native Americans to describe the local mountains, now known as the Inyo Mountains, to early settlers of the area. The Inyo National Forest was named after Inyo County, California, in which much of the Forest resides. It is located in parts of Inyo, Mono, Tulare, and Madera counties in California, and Esmeralda and Mineral counties in Nevada. Forest headquarters are located in Bishop, California. The forest was established on May 25, 1907. On July 1, 1945 land from the former Mono National Forest was added.
