In 1903, the Turtle walked.  An ancient mountain that the indigenous people of the area knew not to mess with… what better place to build a town?  Better tuck it into the very base of a mine where gargantuan ancient forces spontaneously squeeze coal out.  A mountain, a slide, a horse that made it through, and a reason to Stay In the Hotel.
