About this spot
The lack of a good transportation system delayed serious lead and silver mining at Gilmore from 1880 to 1910. Construction of a branch railroad from Montana to serve this mining area resulted in a production of $1l,520,852 before a power plant explosion halted operations here in 1929.

Old Gilmore and Pittsburgh Railway grades are still visible as you enter the town, along with remnants of Gilmore, where current residents still preserve its heritage, remain from that bygone mining era.
