Ghost Towns and Mines


Some mining took place in the Westgate area as early as 1907. In 1939 a 35-ton mill was built by the Westgate Mining & Milling Company. It mostly processed ore from the Wonder mine, but also served other mines in the region.

Westgate was the site of a large Civilian Conservation Corps camp in the late 1930s. There was also a gas station in operation during that period.
