1879 found Seymore with a 40-stamp mill and 1880 found Seymore with 232 residents, store, saloons, laundries, hotels, stage stops, a restaurant, butcher, barber and feed yard. Ore was processed from nearby Vulture Mine and Seymore was in its heyday. Then someone had the bright idea to run a water pipeline from the Hassayampa river right to the Vulture Mine and Seymore was shut down as the milling operation moved to the Vulture Mine. Today there are no roads to Seymore and one must walk the river to get there.
