HistoriCorps is working with the Angeles National Forest to restore Vincent’s Cabin, August 28th-September 2nd.Sun Aug 28 2022



Learn more and RSVP here: https://historicorps.org/vincents-cabin-ca-2022/


Located at roughly 7,000 feet of elevation on Mount Baden-Powell is the Big Horn Mine, which was named after the big horn sheep a man named Charles Tom Vincent was hunting at the time he discovered it in 1891. Vincent and a fellow prospector laid claim to the mine, and the cabin Vincent inhabited - the site of this HistoriCorps project - was his residence. The mine and cabin are located on Gabrielino-Tongva Nation land. Hype around developing the mine was significant; investors advertised their anticipated profits to be in the neighborhood of $8M (roughly $267M in today's dollars). These claims were eventually proven to be overblown, with profits only weighing at $1M ($32M today). Over time, several companies purchased and sold the mine. The latest owner purchased the Big Horn in 1981, but by 1985, the mine was determined to be unproductive. You can read a full history of the mine here.
