    Sulphurdale was established in 1870 and large scale mining operations began in 1883, production varied over the years until operations ceased after the owner died in 1966. Geothermal wells are currently in operation at the site.
    See the wiki link below for more details.

    Directions to Get There:
    Sulphurdale Road is located East of I-15 Just south of I-70.
    The County road passes thought private property that is gated and signed No Trespassing. I was able to obtain permission from an employee to travel through and take photographs as long as I did not leave the road.

    This wasn't listed on the ghost town site list, but I wanted to contribute it. Should Cove Fort be added as well?
