Description
Photographs of the residence of mining businessman John Singleton, in West Adams, Los Angeles, California, 1900.
Background
John Singleton (1847-1914) was born in Tennessee and later went to California and began a career in mining. He made his fortune as a partner in the Yellow Aster Mining Company in Randsburg, Kern County, California, where the Yellow Aster mine was discovered in 1895. In 1900, he purchased an estate in the fashionable West Adams neighborhood of Los Angeles, which he called "Singleton Court." He married Stella Graham in 1901. In 1906, the house burned down in a fire, leaving only the brick stable building. Singleton died at Yellow Aster in 1914.
