Since therrin et al. have been looking into the mystery house near Kenny Hahn, here's what more I've (maybe) learned about it:

"There are approximately 950 acres that remain in private ownership, and on much of this area oil and gas are actively being produced and processed. Related surface structures include oil wells, pipes, water treatment and gas plants, storage tanks, buildings and service roads. Stocker Resources, Inc. has their administrative headquarters on site. Southern California Edison maintains a transmission facility at the southern end of the western ridgeline. The Holy Cross Cemetery property at the far southwest corner of the park site hosts some of the best examples of coastal sage scrub and riparian habitat; the cemetery uses this canyon to dispose of their plant waste material. A historic home built by the Chandler family exists on the western ridgeline and is currently in use as a private residence."

Wow. Well, that explains the cryptic comment I got about "honestly, there are a lot of weird/random things on that field."

Here's the less useful than everything you just wrote response I got:
"They are looking at the Cone house. That house has been there for years. The family that owns that house owns the minerals rights to a couple of wells next to their house. If I am not mistaken some people still do live there. I'm not too sure on that though."

Further clarification: while this might not be true of the people currently living there, traditionally many people live on site once their land becomes an oil field in order to preserve their royalty checks and insure that they aren't overdrilled/underpaid etc.

How often do you see "riparion" in a sentence?? That's awesome.
