History

After silver was discovered at a place called Treasure Hill in 1867, the town of Hamilton was born. Within 2 years the population grew to 20,000 people. Quickly banks, schools, court houses, churches, and saloons followed. But by 1887, the silver had run out, several fires destroyed much of town, and people left to pursue other opportunities. Nothing lasts forever.
