Ophir 1865

logo

Soldiers of the U.S. Army discovered that which created Ophir in 1865.
They noticed that Indians in the territory were using bullets made from silver.
The soldiers soon found the source and proceeded to dispatch the Indians.
They named the location St. Louis. When the find became public,
the site quickly became a town with no official name.
In 1870, it was officially named Ophir after the rich mines of King Solomon.
During its heyday, a number of ornamental homes and buildings were constructed which,
after the silver was exhausted and the town died, became mute testimony that good times do not last forever.
