The brush fire that pretty much consumed Mt. Ellen last year, wiped out what was left of Eagle City. The impressive remains, the water wheel and the mill were moved to the Hanksville blm office. All thats left up there now is the Josephine De Martinique.

Well the original post is quite old but....... Bromide Basin is posted,,,,so no comment :)
I've been to the spot where the old Wolverton Mill sat but is was a pile of scrap with a nearby cabin. Two more cabins donstream that were posted.
