The Midas School was built in 1927 and operated until 1972. After many years as a hunting lodge, it was restored and donated to Friends of Midas in 1998. Tragically, the beautiful building was destroyed by fire in 2005.
Winter in Midas has always been a cold and snowy season. It was not unusual, as Wess Allen remembered, for heavy snows to isolate the town from the rest of the world. Even in the 21st century, winter can cause difficulties. But it's also one of the best times to be in Midas.
Most of these photos were taken during the first decade of the town's existence. Click on each street scene to enlarge the photo and take a close look at how Midas developed in its early years.
