History says that gold was discovered way back in 1879 at the Crystal Gold Mine. It was Tom Irwin who mined it for a total of 3 years. When he left, he decided to make a big blast just to hide the entire mine. It was now the present owner who is also a retired miner who discovered it once again and decided to open it to numerous tourists all around the country and the globe.
