I’m not entirely sure how I managed to stumble upon this website, but I ended up on the website for the Campbell House in St. Louis, Missouri.

Life in Nineteenth Century Mining Towns

One of my biggest fascinations with the Old West is with what life in a Rocky Mountain mining town in nineteenth century would have been like. It would have been a life full of filth, rough characters and hard work combined with drinking, fighting and gambling as pastimes. Of course these are stereo...
