After the Fire, Flash Floods washed away most of the Town

Grand Deposit died for the final time in 2012   First fire, then massive flash flooding delt the final death blow to Grand Deposit.  Grand Deposit began its history in the 1860s.  The town's peak was during the 1920s when a twenty-five ton mill and cyanide plant was built.  The structures that stood until 2012 were mostly from its last revival during the mid 1930s.

This once proud town is all but gone now
