One of three Buildings at Tenabo

we did not camp in Tenabo
Was this building the Tenabo Store?

Tenabo was established on the eastern slope of the Shoshone Range after silver discoveries in 1907.  Tenabo had a hotel, restaurant, assay office, lumberyard, grocery store, school, post office, saloons, brothels, and a population of more than 1000.  After three years of mining, the expenses, including hauling water in from a distant location, no longer justified the operation.  Tenabo lost its post office in 1912, and was soon abandoned.  Extensive mining operations are active today in the area around Tenabo.  Camping is not recommended.
