Hamilton was established in 1860 and drew thousands of prospectors. The town was named for Earl Hamilton, one of the miners who helped establish it. According to Kenneth Jessen, the post office logged 20,000 names of people to deliver mail to. In June, 1860, William Holman founded a competing town named Tarryall City. At one time, Tarryall City was the temporary county seat. By 1880, only 150 people lived in Hamilton, and in 1890 it was reported that none remained.

Today, a cemetary remains at the Hamilton site, along with one building and some tailing piles. Nothing remains at the site of Tarryall City. In fact, these photographs were shot at the Tarryall City site, zoomed in to the Hamilton site.
