|FOX HOTEL, SCHOOL, STORES, GREEK CAMP|
I, Eugene Halverson went to school here in Copperfield in 195/6. It was still called “Upper Bingham” by the old-timers until the Mine separated us from Bingham and a tunnel was built. Everyone knew of “Foxes Switch”

Another picture showed the top part and the back as that rag-tag old garage. It also showed a couple of stores below the school and part of “Old Greek Camp”.
