Turning west from North 14 on to the Blue Heaven road one can turn right down on the old Dodd City road and find but a few reminders of a once thriving mining city. The one remaining hotel is now the home of Mrs. Linnie Owens age 96. During the mining boom her house was called the Mirror Hotel and competed with the Dodd and the Stillwell Hotels for business. There were several General Stores, a thriving blacksmith shop and livery barn, a large school house with two stories - the upper story was used as the Masonic Lodge Hall. The town was named for Dr. Dodd, and early settler. He and his wife are now buried on land owned by G.H. Young, who grandfather was the first postmaster of Dodd City. R.D. Owens, with many others, was one of the pioneer settlers of this little city.
