Within view stood English Cam's Methodist Church, Company Store, Mine Office, School House, Centennial Hall, Helping Hand Hall and a multitude of family cabins. As quicksilver production declined at New Almaden in the early 1900s, the majority of miners left this area and vacant buildings fell into disrepair. Many were later pulled down by the Army Corp of Engineers or used as training ground for the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.

The few remaining traces of life in English Camp serve only as a reminder of a past era that contributed greatly to California history and the development of Santa Clara Valley.
