Maybe we've been watching too much Westworld, but when we saw this 300-acre mining property near Lone Pine, California go up for sale, we had to check out more of these pictures. Gerro Gordo is a privately-owned mining town that is seeping in history. The site is the first major mining camp south of the Sierra Nevada and helped developed Los Angeles into a thriving city. The property hosts a bunkhouse, hoist house, super-intentdent house and a historic hotel with 22 buildings in total.
