In 1900, a new corporation, the Kendall Gold Mining Company, was formed by Kendall and four other trustees with a capital stock of $2,500,000. The town of Kendall, first formed in 1900, quickly grew into a booming mining camp with a population of 1,400 by 1910.” (John Foster) Lee Hilliard (left and E.P.
