Finally, another landmark, Macetown. Named after the Mace brothers. They were part of the 1500 miners that descended on the area in the 1852 gold rush, at the junction of 12 Mile Creek and the Arrow River. Back in the day it boomed with 300 residents, a school, a church, and two hotels. Complete with bars I assume. Now it's part of a Historical Reserve, and accessible on foot or by road, up from Arrowtown. Ihere are a lot of river crossings, so a Ute is advised.
