Long Description:White Hills
Formerly known as Indian Secret Mining District or
Silverado, the White Hills mining camp started in
the 1890's. The mines were rich producers of silver,
especially horn silver, also called chloride silver.
This large community was devastated by a flash flood
on the morning of August 5, 1899 from which the town
never recovered. After the closure of the mines,
the remaining buildings slowly disappeared. Now
nothing is left of the once prosperous mining camp.
The ghost town of White Hills continues to be marked
on travel maps.
