Subject: Bingham, Utah

Written By: Ashkicksass on 02/20/07 at 11:55 am

My mom was born in the little mining town of Bingham, southwest of Salt Lake City.  In it's time, it was a booming little town with upwards of 15,000 residents in the 1920's.  As time has gone on, Kennecott Copper Mine has continued to grow, and has swallowed the little town right up.  All that remains is a cemetary.
