The Kentucky Mill & Mine is a prime example of early mining history which transpired in Sierra City. The mine was worked in the 1850s later the stamp mill came to be to process the gold. The thousand pound stamps were so loud that the townsfolk could hear them throughout the day. Today the site is a park and a museum the mills stamps are the only operable ones in the state. The mine itself was built into the Sierra Buttes very common back in the day as where there was quartz there was gold. Next to the entrance is an old miners cabin which has many of the necessary relics of its day needed for survival. The mine cart tracks had a split one led to a dump pile near the cliff while the other took the quartz in the mill to be crushed for gold processing. Many remnants scatter the hillside pieces that are museum worth and used during this mining operation. This tour is just a taste of things to come we will return to work with the mill more extensively.
