Mammoth City
On this site, opposite colorful Mineral Hill (now known as Red Mountain) where the Mammoth Mines are located, stood the town of Mammoth City. In this gulch during 1878-79 sprouted a mining camp of perhaps a thousand people. Mammoth City -- the center for the nearby, smaller camps of Pine City, Mill City, and Mineral Park -- is said to have has 22 saloons, 13 stores, 2 breweries, 2 livery stables, 5 restaurants, and 2 newspapers. Remember that a ten foot square tent or shack plus a barrel of whiskey were all that was needed to make a "saloon." The Mammoth Mining Company shut down permanently during the severe winter of 1878-80 causing a mass exodus of residents. A daily news report stated "twenty pairs of showshoes, each with a man on top, left this morning."
