Due to Mount Hope's remote wilderness location, the town became known as a rootin', tootin', shootin', coal miner's haven. Major news stories from the day included the deaths of young, scorned lovers, men murdering their wives after long nights spent at a local saloon, and contested municipal elections resolved by gunshot. The burg was said to be as dangerous as the wild-west town of Tombstone, AZ.
