Boom Town Saloons

DSC01963

Location – Historic Landmark, Gold Mine Town – South Pass City, WY

.

Me:    Were all of those saloons in town operating at the same time?
.
Tour Guide:    Yes. In fact, when the town was in it’s biggest boom, there were 12 operating saloons.
.
Me:    Wow. That sounds like there were more saloons than there were people!

.
Tour Guide:    Well, at the time, the population was 2,000 people!
