|Edith had a post office from July to December 1888. Named for the postmaster's wife, Edith never amounted to much although a huge mill was erected in hopes millions would be taken from the mines. In all, only $100,000 was taken and the mill sat idle most of the time. As the ore quickly ran out, so did the town and today only a few foundations still cling to the canyon walls north of Phoenix.||
