George Doane’s Cabin in 1914 Movie


Many thanks to former cabin owner, Peter for being a continual resource, gathering historical info about our favorite Mountain. I didn’t realize that George Doane’s cabin was used in making this film almost 100 years ago! (We should have a Centennial Party next year, don’t you think?!??). THANK YOU Peter!

Bonnie, I regularly add resources to my Palomar Mountain History website at

I recently added a link to film footage of George Doane’s abandoned cabin, used as a set in Cecil B. DeMille’s 1914 film The Virginian. Click for a direct link to that footage via my YouTube.
