Mormon Tavern is a former settlement in El Dorado County, California.[1] It was located on the emigrant road 0.5 miles (0.80 km) west of Clarksville.[1]

The place was founded in 1849.[1] It served as a stop on the Pony Express from 1860 to 1861.[1] There is no certain account of how the place got its name, which is quite incongruous: Mormons (Latter Day Saints) typically don't drink alcohol (as would be served in a tavern).

The site is now registered as California Historical Landmark #699.[2]
