Cinnabar, Idaho. Began around 1903. Ended in 1956. Six miles from Stibnite, Idaho, and 25 miles from Sunnyside Mine on Thunder Mountain. In the late 1800s, miners searched every inch of Stibnite, Thunder Mountain, Edwardsburg, and Sugar Creek in search of gold and silver. Sugar Creek had gold and silver. But it had too much Cinnabar and free-flowing quicksilver for mining other metals, so most prospectors quickly moved on and gave up on Sugar Creek.
Bill Timm’s cabin is still very much intact on Thunder Mountain. Just a few miles from the Dewey Mine. Bill Timm was a scholar, miner, politician, adventurer, postmaster in the town of Roosevelt. Assayer for the US Assay Office. Those who knew him describe him as a man who loved his solitude almost as much as he loved Idaho’s mountains. Especially Thunder Mountain.
The ghost town of Roosevelt is a testament that the mountaineers of Thunder Mountain loved Teddy Roosevelt so much they thought their beautiful town should bear his name.
In 1901, Roosevelt and the surrounding communities were a hustling, bustling place of business. More than 10,000 people received mail at the post office located in Roosevelt.
