Submitted by Connie Popelish, North Fork History Group.
In a 2013 interview, Bill Vanderburg told the North Fork History Group about a saloon on the east side of Road 200 that was built to straddle Fine Gold Creek. He said it was a bar and dance hall with Fine Gold Creek flowing underneath it. Then some years later, the building was washed downstream in a flood.
As a boy, Tim Allen found the wooden sign for the Fine Gold Saloon along Fine Gold Creek. He later gave it to a friend, who allowed the History Group to photograph it.
Our questions are:
- Does anyone remember the Fine Gold Saloon?
- What year was it built and what year did Fine Gold Creek flood and wash the saloon downstream?
- Does anyone have photographs or newspaper articles about the Fine Gold Saloon?
