    Awesome pics, thank you. I love seeing
    those old dynamo/gen-sets. I always
    wonder what it would take to get'em
    running again.

    I love that huge engine out there. When we went, there was not another soul for hours and hours.

    if you want to help save the place read the note below and vote.

    Wickenburg's Vulture Mine has been chosen as a finalist in the National Trust This Place Matters competition. The Mine was the only Arizona site chosen and will be competing with endangered historic sites in other states for a $25,000 grant. Winners will be chosen via online voting beginning June 1, 2011 and continuing through June 30.

    We need your help to win. Please help by voting at:

    http://www.preservationnation.org/take-action/this-place-matters/community-challenge/places/vulture-mine.html.

    ...and by asking your email, Facebook, LinkedIn and other "e contacts" to vote for the Vulture Mine. Voters do not need to reside in AZ.
    (Click on the "register or get a password" line at the bottom of the blue box on the right-hand side of the page. You'll get a prompt to enter your email address and zip code. This controls duplicate voting. Voters can opt out of future emails. You'll get a page of the contestants. Vulture Mine is near the bottom. Click on it and your vote gets cast.)
    The Vulture Mine nomination was submitted by the Vulture Mine Preservation and Restoration Association whose mission is to preserve and restore Henry Wickenburg's 1863 gold mine and adjacent Vulture City for the purpose of interpreting and sharing the mine's legacy and its importance to the development of Arizona and the West. VMPRA will use the proceeds to begin preservation work on the schoolhouses. More information is available at VMPRA's web site http://www.savevulturemine.org.

    Fireman's Fund and National Trust Insurance Services co-sponsorship of the This Place Matters campaign highlights the important role that historic buildings and properties play in preserving our national heritage as well as in preserving our environment.

    THANK YOU for helping!!

    So many of these places desperately need saving, it's a shame that our Government spending works so that we have to fight just to save one when they all deserve help!
