A. Arbour, Esq.
Crofutt’s GRIP-SACK GUIDE TO COLORADO, 1885: “Arborville, Chaffee county, is a small mining camp, five miles west from Maysville, and 18 miles from the town of Salida. Mining and stock-raising are the principal occupations of the people. Population, 150 ….” Page 68.
Arboursville was known to support some mining and smelting from the Monarch Mining District in the 1880s; however, the most prosperous business was purported to be the dancehall and brothel.
