Danielsville Ghost Town of the Month

Near the towering peaks of the Flint Creek Range are the remains of Danielsville.  An old Frenchman discovered gold here just before the turn of the century.  The Frenchman attempted to lead prospectors to the gold but got lost in the heavy snows.  The prospectors turned back while the Frenchman continued on. His body was found the following Spring.  Three Daniel brothers rediscovered the lode in 1901 and the town was named after them. The lode played out quite quickly – about two years.  What remains are some worn out cabins and part of a 20-stamp mill. To visit the site you pass through some rough terrain using a rocky narrow winding road.
