Custer City (ghost town) in Custer County, Idaho — The American West (Mountains)
Got a crush on you....
Stamp mills were noisy and awkward but used for many years because the were easy to move and erect on wooden frames, cheap to operate and repairable by a blacksmith. The General Custer Mill operated up to 20 1,000-pound stamp mills that crushed the ore as fine as flour.
Erected by U.S. Forest Service and Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation.
