History[edit]

Dedrick had a post office from 1891-1941.[3]

The Globe Mine near Dedrick was in operation from 1890 until 1918. The mine, reported as being among the highest in the state, was located at about 7000 feet and used a two mile long aerial tramway and a 20-stamp mill.[4] In 1912, it was reported that one hundred men were on the payroll.[5]

In 1903, Dedrick was referred to as a mining camp with the Chloride-Bailey mine in operation along with Dibble's Saloon.[6]
