The Landmark Project: CHL# 217


The Indians who lived on the village located here had stolen some horses, and the whites followed them back to their camp. After a skirmish, the whites left with the horses that the Indians had not killed. In 1878 the Black Star Coal Mining Company had a mine at the mouth of the canyon.

Christine’s Note:  No plaque, but other pictures I have found of this landmark seem to indicate this is the general vicinity.

Descriptions of each landmark are from the California Office of Historical Preservation website.
