During our stay at the Nugget RV Park in St. Regis, MT we took a trip into Wallace, Idaho. It’s an old silver mining town. This city is surrounded in history.
The highlight was a tour through a working silver mine.. Our tour was guided by a man who worked 20+ years in th mine, Needless to say, his extensive knowledge gave us a trued picture of how the mine works.
We toured a Bordello which was closed down in 1985. The lady who was our tour guide received her knowledge from the ladies who used to work there. They shared their stories of what life was like. In fact many o the rooms the ladies worked and stayed in were left in exactly the way they left them. For example, their clothes, makeup, books they read, etc. No pictures sere allowed inside but I can assure you it was quite interesting.
May of the historic buildings made of brick are original. Most of the wooden structures were destroyed in a fire.
The photo below is of the original rain depot.
The saloon we ate at had so much character.
