In the heart of the mining district of Silver Valley in the town of Wallace, Idaho (USA) there's a museum that's rare in the world. In this little town with 800 inhabitants you can see the escort from before nearly 5 decades.
This settlement that's today small, from the beginning to the middle of the 20th century had been through a mining boom. Then four times the population lived here. Among the residents at that time were men with a surprising ratio of 200:1 relating to women. This disparity was good to social agencies that looked like in the pictures below.

At that time Wallace had several active whorehouses servicing the men after a laborious day. Prostitution was outlawed in 1973, and then all but one was closed. It was run by Madame Ginger and the Oasis Rooms simply took down its sign and continued to work. Madame Ginger gave donations to the local police fund to what kept her out of trouble. Law officers weren’t the only ones who took advantage of Madame's philanthropic activities. The woman also made generous contribution to the local economy, for example she sponsored the Wallace High School’s band uniform. So when the FBI got info about her pimp operation and prepared to raid her brothel in January 1988, the owner was warned. 
All the workers grabbed whatever they could carry and vanished with girls, leaving town forever. When they fled the town they left many personal items like clothes, cosmetics, furniture, magazines and food.

A former mine worker Jack Mayfield and his wife, Michelle, bought later this two-story brick building, and in 1993 they turned it into the Oasis Museum, using the items left. The interior is preserved exactly as in the night when the girl escaped. The owners of the museum added only mannequins that were dressed in abandoned "clothing". One mannequin is dressed as Madame, sitting in the living room on the couch with the joystick of the Atari 5200, a game which the owner was very fond of.

After buying the place, Jack and Michelle painted only one of the walls in the kitchen, which had written local names and phone numbers on.

A lot of information on the functioning of this place was provided by former workers, who returned to see this place after a period of time. According to information provided by them, women worked 12-hour shifts for two weeks non-stop, taking 35 to 40 clients per day. On a good weekend they could earn $2,000, but 60 percent was left in the house, the girls got the rest of it.

Every girl had assigned a wooden box, where she left her earnings between clients. In addition, in the locker was a timer counting down the meeting time.
Today, on the first floor of the museum there's a gift shop where visitors can buy panties, t-shirts, mugs and aprons with printed price list.
