Inscription. Leland Stanford acquired the Union Mine in 1859 for debt. He formed a partnership with R. C. Downs and renamed it the Lincoln Mine.

The Lincoln Mine produced $2,200,000. in gold by 1873, he then sold it to the British Syndicate for $800,000.

The first five stamp mill was powered by a breast-wheel with a wooden shaft and wooden cams with flume water from Sutter Creek.

R. C. Downs married Rose Williams in Connecticut in 1856. Rose refused to live here and lived in Sacramento until the front portion or the house was added.
