Some 20 million dollars in gold came from this wild and wooly gold mining town full of shootings, saloons and `sporting` ladies. Shortly after the gold was found in 1885, 1000 miners flocked to the town. In 1898 the town relocated a quarter mile to a new location, and it grew quickly. The mines faded, the town died, and by the 1970s only empty buildings remained. I don’t know if they are still standing, or if the town has reverted from a class C to a B site. The town is in the Wallowa National Forest, 12 miles northwest of Halfway. Some summer cabins have been built in recent years.
