It was dearly missed when its doors closed in 2016. The Pier Fire of 2017 burned 3 months, threatening the community and forest around Camp Nelson. Using Pierpoint as their staging area, firefighters saved this small mountain community from the fire, which threatened to destroy the area for weeks. That November Tom and Mary Bristow closed escrow and immediately began a complete renovation of the store, restaurant and bar. Pierpoint re-opened in the Spring of 2018 with a new look and a new cuisine, serving California fresh food.
