Twentynine Palms, CA.
Victor remains one of the few active gold mining towns in Colorado.
From the city's web site:
Gold was discovered in the area in 1890...the fever spread like wildfire, bringing thousands to the Pikes Peak area, the largest boom of its kind to hit the West. In 1890 and 1891 prospectors discovered the rich gold ore that touched off the legendary Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Rush. The ranching country on Pikes Peak's western slopes was quickly transformed as prospectors flocked to the area to seek their fortunes in gold. Towns sprang up on the sunny mountainsides as did over 500 gold mines, all requiring fuel, supplies and transportation. It became a priority to link the Cripple Creek and Victor Mining District to Colorado Springs, and beyond. Two stage roads and three railroads were built to carry lumber, food, coal, ore and people to and from the mining district towns and goldfields.
