St. Louis (Zincville), Oklahoma
The Murrell Boarding House, located east of Zincville, Oklahoma, was a typical place where miners lived during the boom days. Mostly single men lived in these buildings where they had a place to sleep and also meals were supplied. Since I see only one stove pipe for a wood or coal stove, I wonder how the rooms were heated in the winter? Notice the large chat pile behind the structure.
