Historic Preservation for the Future
Documenting the past plays an important role in our future. By doing so we ensure we have a complete study of a series of events through time. It is imperative that documentation be updated and recorded. New drone technology has allowed advanced documentation.
Desert Queen Mine
Church building in Congress
Corn Springs Cabin
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.
We, Ken and Desi, have been traveling with off-road vehicles to mining areas for over 40 years. We have been interested in mining and own several claims. Over the years we have seen the decay and destruction of the mining operations of the past. Vandals, weather, and natural causes have destroyed a part of history that can never be regained. We have a heart to preserve this history and share it with others that may never have an opportunity to see or experience it.
