This is truly a unique offering located just about 5 miles from Silverton.
The property is comprised of 2 mining claims; Townsite and Niegold Townsite that parallel one another. The old Buffalo Boy Lower Tramhouse is included on the Niegold Townsite claim. A lot of history here! The Buffalo Boy Mine is located high above timberline and the ore was transported by tram to this lower tramhouse where it was transferred and transported to the mill. The tramhouse and cable system were built circa 1929 and a portion of the lower tramhouse was improved into living quarters in the 1970's. The property would lend itself well to being developed into a destination retreat lodge and cabins. The large, substantial post and beam structure is in excellent condition and would serve as a solid framework upon which to improve the building into habitable space to function as a lodge. This location is a gateway to high mountain recreation and would be an excellent base camp for high country activities, or just a scenic getaway.
