California State Historic Landmark 228
#228 Site of Carbondale
In 1861, after the Southern Pacific took over the Santa Clara
Coal Mine northeast of here, a bustling mining camp complete with hotel, saloons,
shacks, store, and post office sprang up on these flats. Three years later the mine
played out and Carbondale disappeared without a trace.
Nothing remains of this site.
Silverado Community Church entrance, Silverado Canyon Rd, 1.1 mi W of Silverado post office, Silverado.
Return to other landmarks in Orange county.
Please note: I have no connection to any organizations mentioned on this site.
