    Marjorie Moore Brown was raised to be a lady in San Francisco and was a graduate of Mills College. She instead moved to the mining town of Tonopah, Nevada in as a bride of 19 years old. She would tell her story in in her book Lady in Boomtown: Miners and manners on the Nevada frontier. For most of her life she was known as Mrs. Hugh. At Boomtown, we have a variety of slots and video poker machines, including high limit slots, waiting for you to hit it big. So make a night of it with your friends. Grab a drink and let lady luck do her thing.

    A boomtown in the truest sense, Marjorie Moore Brown describes how the Tonopah mining camp came to be in her book, Lady in Boomtown: Miners and Manners on the Nevada Frontier. The first person to discover the value within the ground was Jim Butler, who had been traveling alone through the desert and was unable to make his next stop before. Boom Town is a American adventure film directed by Jack Conway and starring Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, Claudette Colbert, and Hedy supporting cast features Frank Morgan, Lionel Atwill, and Chill Wills.A story written by James Edward Grant in Cosmopolitan magazine entitled "A Lady Comes to Burkburnett" provided the inspiration for the film.

    “[Boom Town is a] dizzyingly pleasurable new history of Oklahoma City. If ‘dizzyingly pleasurable’ and ‘Oklahoma City’ aren’t words you expect to see in the same sentence, Anderson’s book wants to convince you that the capital of America’s 46th state is the most secretly fascinating place on earth.   The book, which was published in , follows the fortunes of its migrant heroine in Shenzhen from her first job, as a secretary, to a life of luxury as the mistress of a wealthy Hong Kong.
