Additional Details:
Dry Town is located on a creek by the same name. Gold was panned here in 1848 and $100 worth of gold was often washed out in a single pan. There were names like Blood, Murderer's and Rattle Snake Gulch. There were 26 saloons and life here was wild and woolly. A fire hit the town, as happened to most of the mining camps, in 1857, and it never recovered as most of the gold had been worked out
