South Pass City


South Pass City’s history is a long & rich one.  Drawn to the region by the promise of gold, miners flocked to the nearby hills & streams in 1868-1869, only to have their hopes dashed by the back breaking work & severe conditions of South Pass.  


Others found their niche & thrived.  


Today, South Pass City is one of the best preserved mining towns in the west.
