Ghost Town History


A.E. Fisher bought this Del Bonita ghost town property in 1912 when the last of the land was opened up by the government.  The Homestead House was built on-site and a building brought with them was used as the barn.  

 

They then built the Red and White Store which sold items like hardware and general goods and had Redhead Gasoline.

They then outgrew the little store and needed more room so in the late 1920's they built the New Fischer Store, which later was known as John's Hardware.

They then sold the property to the Secretan's who worked in Whiskey Gap and moved the Oil Shed (blue building now used as a museum) and Huey Gum Restaurant Pool Hall and Rooms.
