Love this place. Can stand over a 1900ft shaft on a sheet of glass and look down. There’s some awesome old parts and pieces to the mine too. If you shout down into the shaft you can hear it come out across the way. Very...More

Nice small little area outside the Douglas Mansion that has a shaft that goes deeper than the empire state or Eiffel tower.. no admission fee needed.. and it will take you about 10 minutes to see it and take pictures
