After setting up at the campground,we decided to explore some of the many shops in downtown Silver City. Walking the main street of Silver City is like taking a step back in time.
While walking, we happened upon a poster:
Tyrone, now considered a ghost town, was a well-financed company mining town devastated by earlier downturns in the copper industry and later by an open-pit mine that razed the town site. All that remains of the site now is a residential community, containing only homes, a post office and a community center.
We decided to drive the five miles to Tyrone to the event.
We were so glad we did. The entertainment was excellent, from the western songs to the humorous poetry selections. We stayed through the afternoon, and wished we had gotten there earlier in the day.
