Waldo Description

Waldo was one of Oregon's earliest mining settlements. The Waldo district consisted primarily of placer workings, although there were some lode gold and copper mines. Estimates put Waldo's population at a peak of around 1,500, although that can't be confirmed. Nothing is left of the town today.
