Corn Springs Miner’s Cabin

Corn Springs Miners Cabin

Corn Springs Cabin is located near Desert Center California.  Corn Springs Mining District was established in 1897.

Miners came to the area and used the water for processing their gold ore, in the late 19th century.   The most notable resident of the spring was Gus Lederer.  The self-proclaimed “Mayor of Corn Springs”, was Gus Lederer.   He lived at the spring until 1932, when he died from a black widow spider bite.

There is a Bureau of Land Management (BLM) campground nearby and Chemehuevi, Desert Cahuilla and Yuma bands carved elaborate petroglyphs in the nearby rocks.  In 1998, the springs were added to the United States National Register of Historic Places.
