Western Mining Towns in the Rocky Mountains

mindmonkeyMindmonkey on 03/25/2007

WesternMiningTownsintheRockyMountains Photo The Rocky Mountain West is home to some of the most interesting towns in the United States. Many of these started out as mining communities with long, romantic histories. Here are questions about ten of these places. Most are viable communities, but the glory days are over and mining no longer dominates their economies.

Left: These houses date from the original gold rush of the 1860s in Montana's first territorial capital. Today they are part of one of the most well-preserved mining towns of the American West.

Good luck to all!
