Brucknow's Cabin

Hello everyone,

Today I am posting about what can happen when a site is either to public or not well protected, or perhaps both.  Brucknow's Cabin is a pretty well known site here in SE AZ, it is one of the bloodiest places in the state.  Something like 21 people have died/been murdered in around this property.  When we first went to it, there were 4-5 foot walls still standing.  About 5-6 years ago there were only maybe 2 foot walls left, the cabin itself was right off of the road.  It has since either been torn down or has just been completely reabsorbed into the ground, it was adobe brick.  I am in the process of researching to find out which if I can, but I have been quite sick (which is why January's post is a few days late), and have been unable to head out to do so.  It does look like whoever ended up with the property has renewed interest in the mine itself. 

Here are the pics I was able to get, and just as a disclaimer I do not promote trespassing on private property, please obey signs...

Some mining remnants left around the area.

This cleared place is where the cabin used to be, unless my memory is completely flawed, the road in the background used to run past the cabin and back to the mine area.

I will have to post the rest of the photos in another post, there are only another two from this trip, but for whatever reason Blogger will not let me load them here...

I know I have more photos of this site hanging around somewhere, as soon as I find them I will post them as well.  They will show the cabin when you could still locate what was left of it as well as the mine area, which I swear was not as built up as it is now...

  1. It must be my computer, it has been acting up lately, look for another post about this site with a couple more photos and some history in the next few days, as soon as I can convince blogger or my computer to do what I want it to do!
