On account of the many advantages, which Pittsburg offers in the way of schools, churches, parks and amusements of all kinds, it makes it a very desirable place for miners to live, especially on account of the fact that miners can live in Pittsburg and reach practically every mining town in the district without any difficulty on account of the various transportation facilities.
