Rare 1904 promo flyer for the region. Miners at work with ore cart, 7 x 4.5". "The Bohemia mining district is an area of about 9 square miles (23 km2) in the Cascade Range of the U.S. state of Oregon. Near Bohemia Mountain in Lane County, about 25 miles (40 km) southeast of Cottage Grove, the district was the most productive of the mining areas in the Western Cascades. Beginning in the 1860s, mines in the district extracted mainly gold and silver but also copper, zinc, and lead, then valued at a total of about $1 million. In 1858, W. W. Oglesby and Frank Bass, miners from California, found placer gold on Sharps Creek, a tributary of the Row River flowing out of the mountains. In 1863, Ivan (John) Hoky using the Celtic alias James "Bohemia" Johnson, originally from Bohemia in central Europe, and George Ramsey found lode gold while 'dressing out a deer on lamb from the law for killing a American Indian'. He and other miners formed the Bohemia Gold and Silver Mining District in 1867. Eventually, the district included several mines, the most productive of which were called Champion, Helena, Musick, and Noonday. Gold, silver, and other valuable metals are found in a strip 25 to 30 miles (40 to 48 km) wide where the Western Cascades, old and deeply eroded, run west of and parallel to the younger volcanic peaks of the high Cascades. The strip includes five major mining districts: the Bohemia and Fall Creek in Lane County; the North Santiam in Clackamas and Marion counties; the Quartzville in Linn County, and the Blue River in Linn and Lane counties. The Bohemia mining district had its own post office for about 30 years. It was established in 1893 and shut down in 1922. The first postmaster was John B. McGee.[2] The surrounding community, Bohemia City, included houses, saloons, and a hotel, all depending on provisions from Cottage Grove." from wikipedia City: Bohemia Mining District State: Oregon Date: HWAC# 80103
