Near Sedona, the old copper mining town is called a "ghost town," although there are people living there- a couple hundred when I lived on the side of the mountain about 20 years ago.
The Gold King Mine Sawmill in operation- three shots.

hi, Charlie. do you know if folks still live there?
regards, tom

update - I did some quick research - it seems the town is growing and has many tourist/photographer sites
to visit. it is one my travel list.
thanks, Charlie.

Like these a lot, Charlie. Where I grew up, it seems like there was always a guy around with one of these one man mills. And my dad always knew where he was set up.

Thanks Tom and Kenny.
When the price of copper fell- during the early part of the 20th century- the mines closed and the town died. It WAS a ghost town until the hippies moved in (the '50s and '60s).
They kept the town alive, and did some minor repairs.
Then the "artists" discovered Jerome and began to move in. I lived there for two winters during that phase. They had some money and more buildings were brought back to life.
Also at that time tourism discovered the old town on the side of Mingus Mountain, and some outside money began to flow in.
I haven't been back for about 15 years, but I'd expect to see a lot of preservation going on, and few if any "modern-looking" buildings.
It's a neat old town- along the road from Sedona to Prescott (two other nifty destinations).

Charlie, it's a very interesting post with fine images.
I especially like the second one with the note about the fancy cuts.

By the look of the country side in the background he must have had to go a long way to get his timber

Very interesting shots Charlie, love them.

Cheers Ray

Thanks Chris, Ray and Tim.
Yeah- I can't imagine what fancy cuts would be in such an operation. But then, I have neither woodworking experience nor skills.
If he had to go in the direction the pics are aiming- yes, he's have to go a long distance for big trees. But behind is Mingus Mtn. and it quickly gets up into nicely forested land (mostly pine trees).
