CHISOS MINING COMPANY CAMP 
Whatever happened to the town of Chisos, Texas, and the quicksilver mine? My grandfather used to work there about 1914-1920 or so. Are there any book on the area.
Thanks
George R Brown

George,
The Chisos Mining Company Camp was located at Terlingua in Brewster County. See http://www.tsha.utexas.edu/handbook/onl ... hnt13.html for a brief histoy. You will probably want to read Kenneth Baxter Ragsdale's fine book, "Quicksilver: Terlingua and the Chisos Mining Company" published by Texas A & M University Press. Terlingua is no longer a ghost town today being a poplular tourist attraction. Check out http://www.terlinguatx.com/. Gj
