Based on WNMU Professor of History Dr. Scott Fritz's research, this exhibit uses historical photos and objects to tell the "rocky" story of Silver City and Grant County's mining, ranching, and mercantile economy. It includes a safe with unique defense mechanism, and an all-ages interactive activity that demonstrates the impact of ore prices on the livelihoods of early Silver Citians!
