Read about this city in a book called "ghost towns of the northwest."
Not much left of the old town but I was able to get a few pictures.
Watch out for the squatters. They don't own the city but have taken shine to a few of the old houses. They didn't try to stop me from taking a couple pictures but when I talked to them, they weren't very interested in talking.
A couple of my pictures didn't come out. There is the old foundation of an IGA market. Found the sign laying down of the ground by it. Also, the houses have basements and a lot of the old appliances are just in side.
The pictures here are of the un-occupied part of the city.
Didn't try to press my luck taking pictures of the squatters sitting outside their porches in rocking chairs.


Added one picture that isn't mine from a forest service station. Its an overview of what the town looked like. I guess most of the buildings were relocated to Salmon, North of the location.

No Problem! I wish the rest of the pictures came out. This place is pretty cool as it was mostly buildings from the 1950's.

Pretty cool. I haven't had time to make my way up that far yet, but I'll put it on my to do list if I get out there.

It is a pretty well known ghost town but if you haven't been, you should drive down to Silver City sometime. Kind of a cool place!

The reason they don't want their pictures taken is probably because they are wanted somewhere...
