History Highlights 
by Kraig Nelson, docent

From the Cave Creek Museum

Based on photos from the early 1900s, the Cave Creek Museum has an accurate presentation of the entrance to a famous, nearby, underground gold mine: Mormon Girl Mine. The surface entrance to an underground mine is called an adit (from the Latin word aditus, meaning entrance). This mine, with shafts 500 to 600 feet deep, was located on a knoll in proximity to Mormon Boy Mountain. In the 1870s (exact date unknown) an old, gnarly prospector, known as Sweeny, along with his loyal girlfriend Martha, who happened to be a burro, discovered gold, and established this admired mine. Sweeny decided Mormon Boy Mountain should have a girlfriend, so he named the mine, Mormon Girl Mine. Over the years, this historic mine has had several owners and was mined into the 1940s. Have you seen this magnificent, almost 4,000-foot mountain located in the north Desert Foothills? You know, I should mention this ancient mountain has a different name's called...Black Mountain.
