According to additional information provided on 10/2011 by Ken Hedges, Emeritus Curator of California Collections, San Diego Museum of Man and a member of the E.H. Davis Project Scholar Advisory Committee: This is the old Mason ranch house in Mason Valley. A photo in the Museum of Man (Rogers collection, historic component of site C-144, image C-0144-029) shows the structures in much more deteriorated condition, probably in the 1930s.
