Greenhorn City. Information provided by Gregg Smith, who owns a mine near Greenhorn: "View is to the west with buildings on south side of road. Note white house on left, with white picket fence. Compare house behind car and house to right with photo 1999.1.31. In the late 1930s the house was occupied by Mrs. Able, widow of Henry Able, a pocket gold hunter. The AbleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s daughter Verna was married Ernest Petty, a pocket gold hunter who also had the Red Bird and Ophir Mines on Olive Creek. Doris King of Baker City said she witnessed the white house burn down in 1938." Gregg Smith also says that the photo shows Greenhorn after a couple of fires that destroyed most of each side of town.
