Here today and gone tomorrow was Columbia’s fate. A small group of prospectors discovered a ledge of valuable silver in the spring of 1869. There was considerable activity in the area. A store and several cabins were built. But the ledge disappeared and the camp vanished in early 1870. Only wood rubble remains at the site. . Submitted by: HBC
