Mill City (also, Pine City) is a former settlement in Mono County, California.[1] It was located 8.5 miles (14 km) west-northwest of Mount Morrison and 0.5 miles (0.8 km) southwest of Old Mammoth,[2] at an elevation of 8320 feet (2536 m).[1]

Dominating the scene in Mill City are remains of Mammoth Mining Company’s 40-stamp mill, including a large flywheel and stone foundations. Other remains include sunken foundations of additional houses, found among pine trees on a hill above the mill site.[3]
