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.
Roseberry, Idaho is an old Finnish settlement in Donnelly, Idaho. The Finns settled here in the late 19th century after fleeing the oppressive Russian empire who occupied Finland at the time. It is a source of local pride and a part of Idaho history and of who settled it. some of the people still lives here and looking for other buildings that moved from Roseberry to other towns, now They will bring them home to the site.
Fire lookout tower at the summit
The lookout was originally built in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps and then rebuilt in the 1960s. It is one of few lookouts to drive to in the area via a jeep road from the north, but a better option for hiking is to wander up the south ridge of the mountain, starting from where the road crosses No Business Saddle. Round trip is only about three or four miles. Just be prepared for cross-country travel!
