July 5, 2014 Caffe Blossom, Twain Harte, CA Moonalice poster by Lee ConklinAccording to Moonalice legend – but contrary to conventional wisdom – Twain Harte was not named for either Shania Twain or Mickey Hart. The name was the result of an historical accident. A typo. Generations ago, the place was home to the Miwok tribe, whose name for cannabis was Ten Hot. When the railroad came through, the surveyors met with the Miwok … and got baked. By the time they got around to naming the grade, they named it after the delightful Miwok herb … so how did the name change from Ten Hot to Twain Harte? Autocorrect. Happens every time.
