Randsburg Things to Do: 17 reviews and 69 photos


In October of 1897 Mr. Jones opened a dry good store in Randsburg. His building was wiped out in the great fire of May 1898, but saved most of his stock by placing it in a fireproof cellar. After the fire he immediatly built a new adobe building which according Goerge McPherson in his History of Randsburg, was the firt adobe built in town. About 5 feet was added to the front of this building after 1903 fire so it would be in line with the rest of the buildings on Butte Ave. But in 1900 is was recorded that a Dr. Nichols was occupying the building, so it is not know if Mr. Jones was in business. In the 1920's is served as a office for insurance agents and mining engineers. From 1930's to 1980's it was the Postoffice, hence the flag pole.
