The Bessie Love Cabin was part of a development of cabins or bungalows built in this area in the early 1900s. It was screen actress Bessie Love’s first home. But it was built over a site where, in the mid-1800s, two robbers were caught and killed while trying to steal from Mexican Robin Hood Tiburcio Vasquez’s gold stash hidden in nearby caves. Bessie Love discovered in 1918 that her cabin was haunted. She heard men’s voices and moaning, felt cold spots, and had strange electrical anomalies. Also, a houseguest saw the apparition of a man in a cowboy hat in the living room. Subsequent owners have experienced similar phenomena, and the cabin is said to still be haunted.
