LAS FLORES

The only remaining building is the jail.

This narrow gauge railroad ran 7 miles, to the base of the mountain where silver ore was brought from the San Juan mines via cable tramway! The train engine was moved to the town plaza in L.A. Bay.

Jesus Flores pays respect to a friend, Dick Daggett... An entire book could be written about the man who jumped ship, married an Arce girl, prospected gold, and was well known mechanic at Bahia de los Angeles. It was Daggett who informed Erle Stanley Gardner about the Jesuit's Gulfo Camino that might be used as a short cut south. That trip is when Santa Maria Magdalena was discovered.

Senora Daggett next to her husband...

Las Flores bricks and silver ingot molds cover one grave.
