Documents in my Sierra Estrella collection

On this page I am going to put a partial list of some of the hundreds of documents I have collected over the last 12 years. This is not anywhere near all the stuff I have, but it will give the viewer/reader an idea of the extent of the collection. The purpose of this is to preserve knowledge and information that is rapidly disappearing. Let me site one or two examples. In about 1993 I visited the Town of Maricopa library and there was a small file on the history of Maricopa with stories and articles by many "old timers", including one by Dallas Smith. There was also a nice model of the Maricopa Wells station, done by school kids. Several years later I returned to check out the file and to take a picture of the model for my documentation. Both were gone, probably thrown away!. The good news is that I did make a copy of the Dallas Smith paper, but it was in pretty bad shape already and much of it is illegible.

I will also add a few scanned images of some of these documents. If there is a hyperlink in the first colun, then I have a copy here in graphics format.
