Welcome to Western Mining History. My goal for this site is to document the historical, social, and political landscape of the American West through a study of its mining heritage. This is a huge and ongoing project. I currently have over 4,000 images in the database and expect to add many more in the near future. I hope you find this site as informative and enjoyable to view as it was for me to create.

Aaron Walton, Webmaster
