Hi, as a historian I've been to Gilman many times and the latest news is that the EPA who shut them down in 1985 recently surveyed the soil and deemed it 'suitable" and since the entire property is privately owned it was recently sold to investors who are planning on leveling the entire area and building a ski resort! Very upsetting. Currently crews of bulldozers are dismantling the mine BELOW gilman which very few know exist and working their way up to the town which you can see from the road. The lower portion cannot be seen from the highway and you have to access it via a long foot hike through the valley below next to the river running along side Gilman. I would love to post more of the history of Gilman but I am pressed for time at the moment. Good pictures though!

Just visited Gilman a couple of days ago. It is a lot more run down now then in these pictures. I have many interesting pics as well. Did you get much history on the town?
