Details

We are identifying the location and date of this scene at a small hard-rock mine by its photographer, J. C. Clark, who worked in La Grande from 1889 to 1891. It shows a heavy ore wagon being pulled by a strong team heading somewhere (hopefully downhill!) for processing.

See Related Items below for a photo of the full crew gathered for a portrait, probably on this same road.

The initial economic interest in Union County was mining, but most of the mines were in an area annexed by Baker County in 1901. Over the years farming and timber replaced mining as the primary economic forces in the county.

-- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
