Temple Bar History
The Temple Bar Mining Company produced placer gold from 1894 to 1898. After having problems securing driftwood from the river, they shipped the needed timbers from Kingman. The miners picked up their mail at Rioville. Daniel Bonelli is credited with naming "The Mormon Temple" at Temple Bar.
