Save when you purchase a Heritage Pass when purchasing your mine tour ticket. On your way back to Silverton from the Old Hundred, visit the Mayflower Mill where gold ore was processed and learn the rest of the mining story. Built in 1929, it is complete with all it's original equipment and is now a National Historic Landmark.
When you arrive back in Silverton, the Heritage Pass also admits you to the San Juan County Historical Society's Mining Heritage Center and 1902 Jail. See wonderfully detailed interpretive displays of all aspects of mining and life in the mining camps, plus rare photos and artifacts.
Purchase the Heritage Pass at any of the three sites.
