Frisco was born August 21, 1871 reaching its peak in in 1910, then slowly faded into obscurity in the 1930's. During it's heyday, Frisco mines produced over $80,000,000 in ore, primarily silver and lead. Some 20,000 residents worked the mines and town businesses. As expected, there were dozens of bars in the thriving business district, but only a few walls and foundations are seen today.
