Pearce Mining Metropolis (access required)

This board and batten shack at the mining camp of Pearce in southeastern Arizona was photographed sometime after 1894, the year of a gold and silver strike there. The shack appears to have been built in two pieces – an addition is tacked on to the side of the main room with a one-by-four. The incongruous address above the doorway suggests that the shack was hauled from another location – perhaps Tombstone. The seated man is identified as Monte Montgomery.
