Discoveries were first made here in 1863 by Mexican prospectors, possibly outfitted by Emanuel San Pedro. This camp never struck it rich even though it had a few revivals over the years. The workings here look pretty poor and I didn’t go underground. One interesting find here was the arrastra, of which I haven’t found too many of in Nevada. It was probably built by the Mexicans.

The mills and cabins are getting torn up by vandals.
