Tamarack Location

“An operation of such size and scope as the Tamarack Mine required a great deal of labor to succeed, nearly 2000 able bodied men when all was said and done. Since the adjacent village of Red Jacket was already quite overcrowded by the time Tamarack arrived on the scene, this new influx of workers required a new supply of housing. In response the company dutifully cleared land around the mine site, laid out a grid work of streets, and lined those streets with over a hundred houses and duplexes for those workers and their families to live. With this the community known as Tamarack Location was born.”
