Ore discoveries were made at Bunker Hill in 1863. In 1864 a mill was built at nearby Kingston that treated ore from the Bunker Hill mines. There was growth and activity at Bunker Hill that attracted a small camp. Some stone cabins were built but before substantial development could take place Kingston became the main settlement. Bunker Hill then became mainly a scene of mining activity with practically no permanent inhabitants. The mines were active until the mill closed in Kingston in 1869. A few stone remains still exist at Bunker Hill along with mines and other ruins. The setting is inviting and with a wooded camp ground, plan to stay a day or two.
