Description

The excitement of a gold rush, a strong coal deposit, or the arrival of a railroad could turn a sleepy little village into a boomtown overnight! Children will learn about real “Old West” boomtowns and the businesses, justice systems, and entertainment in these bustling cities that often ended up as ghost towns.
