Description

Lebanon Silver Mine is located at the halfway point on the Georgetown Loop Railroad. The only way to visit it is as a stop on a train ride from Silver Plume Depot. The train was once built to help the silver mining by providing transport for equipment, people and of course the ore.

The tour starts at the dry, the original miners locker room. Then the tour enters the mine and sees mining history about 130 years old. The miners were working under very bad conditions, but they were also the best payed workers in the country.
