Found in 1862, Walhalla (named after Valhalla of Norse mythology) was a gold mining boom-town. Near the bottom of a valley in the mountains, 127 tonnes of gold were dug from it's mines. Between 1886 and 1896 its population peaked at 4500 with around 900 buildings. In 1914 Walhalla's industry collapsed, and became a ghost town. Nowadays, Walhalla has become a cosey little place.
