    • Abstract:
      The article provides information on Tinton, a ghost town in South Dakota. Ore was discovered by Edgar Saint John in the town during the Black Hills gold rush in the mid-1870s. A community hall with a basketball court that could accommodate as many as 200 spectators was built by the citizens in 1927. A huge fire in January 1943 that burned the mill that supported Tinton is said to bring an end to the town.
