WHAT to know?
It's the Mountain Drive, not the Destination...
Cameras Required !
Kirwin, Wyoming was a booming Mining Town from roughly 1891 until 1907, when a killer Avalanche destroyed much of the Town killing 3 residents. That tragedy, combined with constant threat of winter avalanches, and so little discovered ore, caused folks to abandon Kirwin. Back in the day, an adventurous, all-day ride by Stage Coach, custom delivery or horseback was the only access. Nonetheless, in it's heyday this secluded community boasted Electricity & Telephone lines !! Man, if they's just had wifi....
It was an unusual Mining Town mostly made up of Miners with families and children.
It WAS unusal in that Kirwin had No Saloon or Brothel.
We hope you'll wander around this website and learn a bit more about the History of this Hidden Jewel of the Yellowstone Ecosystem tucked way back in these gorgeous Mountains : Kirwin Ghost Town
