Ghost Towns, Mines, and More!


This site is infamous as the hideout of Charles Manson and his murderous gang. Manson was captured here. I camped here one weekend in 1993 with my son Steven and friends Peter and Vanessa. I’ve heard that the house has burned down sometime since then.

I’ve only been able to find and scan a few of the photos from my trip there in 1993. I’ll post more when I find the rest.
