Admittedly, I chose to visit this place because it was referenced In a Louis LaMour novel so I came with some perspective. But I found the information available quite interesting. As a visual, the remains of the town does not offer much, but it is a beautiful setting at the edge of the Dixie National Forest and the seen of some newly developed luxury homes. Views down the valley are beautiful and there is a great deal of information about the silver mining operations of the late 1800's. One might miss a tour of the Catholic and the Protestant cemeteries at the base of the hill which offer some interesting epitaphs. The museum was actually closed (Tuesday and Wednesdays we are told) but one of the trustees happened by and opened a supplemental building which had a great model of the town and an audio presentation of its history. Worth a stop.
