South Pass City, WY - Miner's Cabin

South Pass City, Wyoming's initial great boom wouldn’t last. Just two years after its establishment, the town would begin to show its first signs of declining. Hitting a slump in early 1869, the town resurged briefly after outside capital was poured into the area, but, would slump again as expenses and hardships to recover the gold proved too costly for most miners. By 1872, the town only was occupied by only a few hundred people.
