CERRO GORDO CAL­I­FOR­NIA GHOST TOWN IN SEARCH OF A FU­TURE

Gervois - - Cerro Gordo California Ghost Town In Search Of A F -

Cerro Gordo con­sists of 22 struc­tures and 300 acres of land and min­ing per­mits in the Inyo Moun­tains (Cal­i­for­nia), and was once a min­ing town that sprung up when sil­ver was found in the area in 1865. It has been ac­quired in July 2018 by Brent Un­der­wood, Jon Bier, and a group of Los An­ge­les-based in­vestors beat out other of­fers, in hopes of breath­ing new life into the ghost town. (The prop­erty was sold by Jake Ras­mu­son of Bishop Real Es­tate.)

“We want to main­tain the his­toric na­ture of the prop­erty while in­tro­duc­ing ameni­ties that will al­low more peo­ple to en­joy this piece of Amer­i­can his­tory,” Brent Un­der­wood told the San Fran­cisco Chron­i­cle. “We have spent a lot of time with the cur­rent own­ers and caretaker to learn the his­tory of the place. I’ve read all the books I can find on the town. I can’t ex­press our ex­cite­ment to be able to con­tinue the care of this beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tion.”
