Monte Cristo Letterpress Documents

Fred Cruger of the Granite Falls Historical Society recently scanned 2600+ pages of correspondence between the mining corporation at Monte Cristo and their counterparts in Everett, WA and beyond. The letters were painstakingly reproduced by Forrest Johanson over a period of years, resulting in a renewed copy of the 100+ year old hand-typed originals. Browse through this content and re-live the day-to-day operations (and troubles, mostly) encountered in the Monte Cristo Mining Area.

Thanks Fred and Forrest for preserving and sharing this content!
