However from 1880 to 1910 it was a booming mining town with a number of mines, huge smelters, eight hotels, three churches, two schools, two banks and a variety of shops as well as its own newspaper.

This book was written to be used during a tour around the area. It includes a map of the town and photos of old buildings.
