Bohemia City

Last standing structure at Bohemia CityYesterday, we took the Jeep out for a drive in the hills to an abondoned mining town called Bohemia City.  This is the origin of the Bohemia Mining Days in Cottage Grove.  Although the road is very rough on the way up, this is one of my favorite drives.  For some reason, it is odd to me that there are still MANY active mines in this area.  I would love to know more about the mining in this area.  There is a Bohemia Mining Museum in Cottage Grove that I have been meaning to make it to for a few years now that we will have to visit now that it is fresh in our minds. 

Here is a link to a map showing where Bohemia City is… thank goodness for the Jeep, I would not have wanted to get here in the “old days”!
