Location #2

Just north, and adjacent to location #1 on the west side of Cattleman Rd. is a collection of around 25 tiny houses in a grid pattern. I'm still researching this little community, but here's what I know so far. It is currently owned my Armando Chavez of San Lucas. It was housing for the farm and ranch workers in the area, but I have no information on the year. Apparantly, according to several people that I have spoken to it was known as Camp Rojo, or Red Camp, and at some time, the use of pesticides in the crops nearby contaminated the drinking water supply, and the place was abandoned. I hope to get more details about this location in the near future, and will update this page as soon as I do.
