Ghost Towns, Mines, and More!


The Alhambra and Black Eagle Mines are located high in the Inyo mountains east of Independence, CA. They are very close together and I’m not sure which is which, so I’m lumping them together on one page. I don’t know the history of either of these mines.

The only structure still standing is this cabin. The ruins of a wooden headframe are scattered around a mine shaft near the cabin. Just below the cabin is the remains of a small stone structure. There are several other mine shafts and prospects in the area.
