California State Historic Landmark 757
Caliente, formerly Allen's Camp, was renamed when the Southern Pacific Railroad established construction headquarters here in 1875 while track was laid over Tehachapi Pass. It was a freighting center for Havilah and other mining towns as well as shipping point for cattle from Walker's Basin and Bear Mountain.
2.3 mi N of Hwy 58 on Bealville Rd, Caliente.
