Mining - Office and Hoist of the Gold Hill Copper Co

Gold was first discovered here in 1842.  Over the next fourteen years, production at the various mines totaled two million dollars.  The mines produced less and less and ceased operations at the beginning of the Civil War.  Gold Hill is now a picturesque village of shops and homes.
