I visited Schofield a couple of weeks ago for the first time. It's really small. The cemetery is really something. There are close to 200 graves of those who died in the mining accident of 1900. Many of them are family members. It's really sad. But, it's a pretty area.

I enjoyed this article in which Lee captured the spirit of Scofield. I've visited it many times and would love to own a little place in Cold Creek. The history of the area, including the tragic event at Winter Quarters is all fascinating. Thank you DN and Lee for including this feature.

Really enjoyed this article. My greatgrandfather and his brother both survived the Mine Explosion at Winter Quarters on May 1st 1900, by refusing to enter the mine, because they had a bad feeling about going in that day. They tried to get others to not go in, but most of their co-workers ignored their concerns and entered the mine and subsequently lost their lives. My grandmother was a baby living in the area with his parents at the time. A few years later both brother quit the coal mining business, as they always felt it was very dangerous.

With the trash fish (chubs) infesting the reservoir, and the river below it, I hope Scofield can hang on. Less fishermen will come if it gets much worse.

Let's hope for the best.
