: Many of the original homes, including the bachelor's cabin, smelting facility, and parts of the battleship Oregon (whose boiler was sent to the miners after decommision) can still be viewed here.

: Beware, though! As it is below the mountains, best time to travel there is spring or summer, plus you can only drive up to about three miles outside the town ...the rest is hoofing it. But you can view a lot of the mines (blocked off from further exploration) and various apparatus left by the miners.

: You can still find samples of iron ore, copper, pyrite, and many, many samples of quartz should you be a rock hound. :)
