Even though it is a fictional town, it is generally based on Salida, Colorado and like mining towns. I would walk around Jubilee Springs, take a peek at the mining married housing, have a meal at the River Valley Inn, take a picnic lunch to the city park, enjoy some pastries from DeMitri's bakery and visit some of the other businesses in town. I definitely would want to see the inside of the bank, the rail station and visit the two cemeteries. It would be fun to go back with my modern digital camera and take pictures of the headstones in the cemeteries--Catholic, Protestant and Masonic--then bring them home and add them to Find-a-Grave, because many old headstones, especially those made of wood, are now lost.(less)
