Kellogg, Idaho

For one hundred years, Kellogg was proud of it's Mining and Milling Heritage. Kellogg's Bunker Hill mine and smelter was known world wide as a leader in it's field. Then the unthinkable happened. Bunker Hill shut it's mine and smelter down, throwing thousands of men out of work. The town, wanting to change it's image, adopted an Alpine theme and built a gondola to the top of Silver Mountain.
