Long Description:

Record Cold Spot

The coldest official temperature ever recorded in the continental United States occurred at a mining camp near here January 20, 1954 when the temperature dropped to 70 degrees below zero.

Describe the area and history:
The area is a wooded area with mines in the area. Hard to imagine that cold as it was in the upper 90's the day I was in the area.
