It is a REAL shame! I was IN THE BUILDING on Sunday, March 11th, during a tour of the grounds and facility. We still plan to hold outings here in the fall and next winter, but obviously a lot of Arizona gold mining antiques, artwork and artifacts have been lost forever.

The original stamp mill from the Congress gold mine.

This was taken from a room on the second-floor of the hotel, now burned to the ground.

Terry ... Where is the picture of the poker hall ... you know you can't be there without a good Penny Ante Poker Game! :)

Seriously though it is a shame to have lost all that history.
