Army drills in front of the Crown Hotel. Designed by W.C. Harris, architect, this was meant to be the working man's hotel. It was less luxurious but still far above most hotels of the day.

The town had been deserted, but had fine quarters for the military: officers and the hospital were in the Broughton Arms; the non-commisioned officers at The Crown Hotel; and the enlisted men in the forty-three cottages that had been built for miners.
