Wyoming was the site of a stamp mill and the Wyoming mine in the 1870s; it was also known as "Hell Town," because it had enough saloons to accomodate the miners from nearby towns (i.e., Delaware, Central, etc.), and they operated around the clock. Wyoming appears to have attained the status of ghost town by the early 1920s. Submitted by: Kurt Wenner
