Who is Eddy?
Unoccupied Ghost Town
The Eddyville town site remains are tucked deep in a crevice of the Pilot Mountains. The site was probably not a very popular one among prospectors who had been digging here since the late 1800’s. It was not until May of 1932 that a decent ore vein was discovered here which prompted some form of organized mining. Eddyville had become a company town of sorts, housing workers who explored her deep vertical mine shafts. Most of today’s remains consist of fallen planks of wood that once comprised a residence or building of sorts. There are several mines located above the former town site; the most notable is a deep vertical shaft that is now surrounded by wire fencing for safety, its wood ladders and landings rotting below the earth’s surface.
