Mining Equipment Town

Before the town was even officially platted in 1893 it had already become known as the City of Mines because the largest and richest gold mines of the Cripple Creek Mining District were located on Battle Mountain just above the camp.. The Cripple Creek gold rush began when a cowboy and parttime prospector, Bob Womack, found gold on his cattle ranch in 1890.
