Situated at an elevation of 10,152 feet (3,094 m), Leadville is the highest incorporated city and the second highest incorporated municipality in the United States. A former silver mining town that lies near the headwaters of the Arkansas River in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, the Leadville Historic District contains many historic structures and sites from its dynamic mining era. In the late 19th century, Leadville was the second most populous city in Colorado, after Denver.
The ville of Leadville was not too far from Brody's school. This particular ville was a little better off than some of the others, and here Ryan got a room and a decent meal. He was set upon by three bandits, wanting to know what happened to their friends. He killed all three and was given his meal for free. He then left a message for the others when they finally get there. (Crossways)
