Who built this?


Similar construction to the El Barril house. Been wanting to check this place out for a long time. Anybody no who and what time period all this work was done for?

Hurts my neck... Can you flip those on your computer, then upload to Nomad?

Is that at San Miguel (south of El Barril)?

The style of the building is French El Boleo Mine era (supporting the copper miners of Santa Rosalia (1880s-1950s).
The building at Prosperidad (east of Guillermo Prieto) is similar.

For some reason whatever I try flips them automatically. But yes San Miguel. I do miss the old google earth, was a lot easier to find these treasures.

I think Roy (Squarecircle) knows some of the history about Rancho San Miguel. Maybe it was the lady we met at Rancho Crestone north of R. Santa Barbara told Roy about the family at San Miguel.
