Eagle Mountain, CA

The United States has many ghost towns scattered throughout the West. Most have the same story: A deposit of some precious metal is discovered, a town is set up and people flock to the new town in search of riches. Eventually the natural resources of the area run out and if the town had no other industry, it would eventually die.

A unique story is that of Eagle Mountain, California. A rich iron ore deposit brought Henry Kaiser (Kaiser Steel, Kaiser Permanente) to the area in 1948. The mining produced iron ore for 35 years before the land was exhausted and operations shut down. Eagle Mountain was not done, however. Numerous attempts to bring industry back to revitalize the town have tried, and failed, to resurrect the old mining site. So what is standing in the way of progress? The answer might surprise you…



Great site BTW:

Re: Eagle Mountain, CA

Fascinating. There is something unearthly and eerie about these ghost towns, as if the walls of its structures are willingly withholding their the story of their rise and fall.

I love exploring them, yet I always feel as if I'm intruding ;)
