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 house where the mine’s owner lived with his family, and the other buildings surrounding the house.


Any of these structures would make a great model, as well as providing excellent reference for a variety of materials: stone, weathered wood, peeled paint, corrugated metal, rust, etc.
