Orig 1910 Photo Julihn & Remington Homes Downtown Benton Hot Springs Mono Co Ca
- Source: eBay
Offered here is an original 1910 photo showing a view of the Carl Julihn and Fowler Remington homes right across the street from the Trading Post on Main Street in downtown Benton Hot Springs, Mono County, California. The two story home on the left (the Julihn's) still stands today. The single story home to the right of it (the Remington's) is in ruin and engulfed with overgrown Salt Cedar Trees today. You can't even see inside the trees at the collapsed home. For some reason over the years, this home was allowed to deteriorate, while the two story home was continuously lived in and has occupants now. The Trading Post still stands today and is a state registered historical landmark. Photo measures approximately 4 1/4 " x 2 1/2", and has decent image quality. A classic and rare photo of a Western Mining town scene which sprang up in the late 1860's when silver was discovered on Blind Springs Hill just southeast of the townsite. Winning bidder pays $2.60 for S&H.
