Ghost Towns and Mines


The Red Rock mine is located near Boundary Peak, at about 7000’ elevation. It was started in 1927 and remained in operation until at least 1957. Besides the mill, there are cabins and bunkhouses for the workers, garages, workshops, a house and other structures where the owner lived, and many other interesting things to see. The mine was originally all underground, with over 4000’ of tunnels, but later they switched to open cuts and pits.

There is so much to see at the Red Rock Mine, that I’ve created a separate page for each area of interest. This page features the group of small buildings near the mill. These structures provide excellent reference for modelers of old buildings, weathered wood, stone cabins, primitive construction, etc.
