Castle Dome was a silver mine that started in 1864. It was considered a very rich  mine due to the high content of silver in the ore they pulled from the ground. The mine was active until 1979 when silver prices fell and it wasn't profitable anymore.  They also mined lead during both world wars. They mined a total of 9 million pounds of lead ore during World War II, making it one of the largest wartime producers in the country.
