1. Pearl Marker
Inscription. Gold mines high on a ridge above here maintained an industrial community at Pearl from 1894 to 1910 when ore ran out.
Now a silent reminder of Gem County's major gold rush, Pearl once boasted of 3 mercantile stores, a butcher shop, 4 saloons, 2 hotels, one church, one school, a fire station, and an Odd Fellows Lodge. Although Pearl has deteriorated slowly since 1910, the lure of gold has continued to spark interest there as recently as 1982.
