Found this on Wiki Commons. It's huge so I'm not going to embed it in the post, but I thought it was a building with a lot of character and some crazy weathering.

Way cool Titus, looks like a great scratch build for sure. That looks to be right up my alley.

Yep-I remember seeing this one years ago when we went there. Looks about the same condition it was in 20 or so years back. Pinos Altos is a neat little mining town, but the real estate values are through the roof! Last time I looked, there were 2 homes listed in the over a million range and they didn't look as nice as some I saw across the border in Clifton, AZ for under 70K...go figure!

There are a lot of interesting buildings in Pinos Altos (locals just say P.A.)Some dating to the late 1850's Unfortunately, the Opera House is not one of them, it was built by Frank Tatsch construction in the early 1970's. I know, I'm always the poo-bear.
