The Thompson Cabin was originally built as an office on the fourth level of the Ajax Mine. In the 1940s, Joseph Thompson had it dismantled and rebuilt it in the Athletic Field where the baseball park is, now often referred to as the Gold Bowl. In 1996 it was moved from the Gold Bowl to its current location. Joe & Marjie Stevens, who operate and run the Colorado Trading & Transfer Company of Victor, have refurbished the cabin making it a quite, cozy getaway.
