Randsburg is located in Kern County, California. It is on the west side of U.S. Route 395 between Kramer Junction to the south and Ridgecrest to the north.
The first eight pictures are of some of the houses in Randsburg. I wasn't going to knock on doors and bother people with questions, so I don't know anything about the history of these houses.
Newer home with open mine shaft in the backyard.
The lonesome old gold ore cart.
The Cottage Hotel had a turn of the century beginning
with the gold mining boom in the town of Randsburg.
It outlasted 3 fires, flu epidemics and many rough customers.
The Santa Barbara Church, corner of Lexington and Butte streets.
Tomorrow PART 3: Uptown Randsburg - If anyone has more information on any of these pictures, please don't hesitate to contact me. I will use it to update this post.
