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)

Saturday Snippet: I'm Not Sure What You Expect -by Zina Abbott





















Saturday Snippet from Millwright's Daughter

“It wasn’t all a Sunday picnic, Mrs. Arnold. There were many I worked for who did not think well of me or my work. I investigated as many who worked for the B&O as I did those outside the railroad.” Caroline attempted to gesture with her weak arm, but let it fall back in her lap. “Phffft! Graft is everywhere, Mr. Halsey. I’m sure you acquire... Read more of this blog post »
