Content Description

This collection consists of fifteen 4 x 6 color photographs of the ghost towns of Terry (S.D.) and Trojan (S.D.). Most of the images are of Terry (S.D.) The photographs were taken in October and November 2001. The community of Terry was located in Lawrence county, southwest of Lead starting in1876. The Burlington railroad ran through Terry, as this once was a sizable settlement of miners for the Golden Reward Mine. Terry declined rapidly after the Golden Reward Mine closed down in 1918. Trojan, also in Lawrence County, was initially named Green Mount, then Portland, and finally Trojan. The Trojan Mine was located nearby. The town of Trojan declined after 1959, when the Bald Mountain Mining Company closed down.
