Hamilton is an AMAZING place! The ruins are awesome - there is soooooooooo much to explore here! We visited here during our Ghost Town Rally 2003 and were amazed at the beauty of this ghost town!
While visiting the cemetary we met a couple that were looking for the grave of one of their ancestors. They told us the story of their grandfather that was born in Hamilton but had an abusive father, so he ran away on horseback and fled to Genoa - almost 400 miles to the west. Pretty interesting!
