East Belmont

East Belmont developed shortly after Belmont's boom began in 1865. It was located around a mile southeast of the larger town just over a small hill, and was also the location of many of its larger mines and most of the mills. The 10-stamp Highbridge Mill opened in 1867, followed by the Combination and El Dorado (Coover's) mills. East Belmont was also the location of Chinatown. Many stone ruins are scattered around the area, and the brick ruins of the Combination and Cameron mills dominate the site.
