DEADWOOD, 22 km west of GRAND FORKS near GREENWOOD in the BOUNDARY DISTRICT, was the site of the Mother Lode Mine, staked in 1891 and in production from 1900 to 1918. A townsite, complete with hotels and stores, was laid out at the mine to serve the workforce of 200, a SAWMILL was built, and the CPR's COLUMBIA & WESTERN RWY ran in a branch line. Deadwood was abandoned by early 1920s.
