As you meander past Highway 26 to the east of Prineville, Oregon you happen upon the old Four Horseman Hotel and Blue Ridge Mine. Rumor has it that the hotel had a mercantile down on the lowest level, and upstairs, bunks for the miners and more notably, a supposed brothel.
Up in the hills behind the hotel are the remains of the mine, which most notably produced mercury. The mine and hotel apparently were founded in or around 1930. The mine itself ran into the late 50's.
