  • Very interesting history of Smelterville. I grew up on South Lorimier, just a block from the old bridge. Although Smelterville wasn’t that far, it was a world away. As a Girl Scout we visited many of the dirt floor houses to bring Christmas baskets. The Blue Hole was my dad's favorite place to take us out to eat. But, mostly Smelterville was just a place you passed through on your way to somewhere else.
