A German immigrant to California's Gold Rush, F. A. Hihn is considered by many as Santa Cruz County's most influential entrepreneur, from his arrival in Santa Cruz (1851) to his death (1913). Charles Bruce Younger Sr. was Hihn's principal attorney and dean of the legal community, and the two families were united by the marriage of Agnes Hihn, Therese and F. A. Hihn's youngest daughter, and C. B. Younger Jr. This collection includes transcribed agreements, deeds, and leases from the archive. For more information, see the Hihn Younger Archive site.
