The real thing: An Old West gold mine for sale
Every now and then, we come across something truly unusual. Here we have a real, actual Western gold mine on almost 89 acres for $550,000. The Olive Creek mines are on private property in Baker County and were last mined around 1909. These are patented mines with valid claims and anyone buying this property would be entitled to begin mining again. Mines are rich in history and this one has colorful names for its claims like Red Bell 1,2 and 3, Manhatten and Black Bart. The nearest towns are Sumpter, population 204, and Greenhorn – officially the smallest town in Oregon, with a population of 3.
