(Cottage No. 2)

This restored house is one of the original homes in the town of New Almaden, which was originally called Hacienda. The house was built in 1847 by Barron, Forbes Mining Co. and owned by the mining company until its bankruptcy in 1912.
The cottage was first occupied by John Young, a native of Scotland, who was a trader and master of vessels on the coast. In the fall of 1847, he arrived here with Alexander Forbes and a sizable crew of workers, and became Superintendent of the initial mining operations. Young died in San Francisco in 1864.
