Description of Belmont Ghost Town

Belmont  Belmont

Belmont was found in 1865 on a site of newly discovered silver deposit. It quickly grew to 4000 residents. The settlement lasted for over 40 years adding several boarding houses, church, saloons, sawmills, firehouse, general stores and even fraternal organization. Additionally the city had its own newspaper. Over time however silver that kept the city alive began to dwindle decreasing number of its residents. For a brief time Belmont was reborn after a new large deposit was discovered in 1914. After just eight years the silver mine was closed again in 1922.

The courthouse of Belmont Ghost Town was constructed in 1877. It served until 1905.
