English Camp Barn
In the Almaden Quicksilver County Park in South San Jose are some abandoned cinnabar mines and a few structures that were present in the mini camps that existed up in the hills. This is an old barn that existed in English Camp (yes, there was a neighboring Spanish Camp for the Spanish speakers). I’m not sure if the red color is original or added by the parks department a decade or two ago. It’s pretty beat up and has some charm. I’m not sure if it has as much charm as I was hoping for after a long hike lugging my camera gear around.
