2013 – Summer Vacation – Part 2E

02 Jun

Poverty Gulch

We next head over to another area and find more surprises.  On our right we find a Headframe, Ore House, and two other mining buildings that were not there before.  This new relocation site has two great information signs on the Headframe and Ore House and I will later learn the identity of the two buildings.

Pinnacle Ore House

On the other side of the road is yet another surprise as we find a Ore House on a flatbed truck.  As you will read farther on within this post I determined it’s identity too as the Pinnacle Ore House.

Gold Camp Trail and Poverty Gulch

What we came to location was the old Gold Camp Trail and Exhibit (30 45.240N / 105  08.937W) and they are there.  It’s hot and things are a bit of a mess around this location right now so we will head on down the road

Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mining Company

Since my previous post I got a chance to talk to Jane Mannon of the Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mining Company and she helped me identify the Pinnacle Ore House photo in this post but also learned the Anaconda Blacksmith Shop has been relocated that I was concerned about in my earlier post.

I also learned about their Newsletter that contained a wonderful wealth of information including the below relocation information:
