Maggie Mine | Full Tour | Calico Ghost Town

By theFUNnelCakeBlog | Feb 24, 2022
Calico Ghost Town's The Maggie Mine was a working silver mine in the 1880s and is now the only mine that is safe for guests to experience. Your 1000 foot self-guided tour will begin with a blacklight display that shows some of the minerals in the local rocks. Then you will continue down the mine drift where you will see and hear the history of the mine and learn how the miners worked in the local Calico mountains.

Before entering the Maggie Mine, you can learn about the process of getting silver from the ore, see a reconstruction of an Assay office, and samples of stamp mills that were used during the early days in mining. There are antique mining exhibits to explore, as well as photographs and educational information.

Be sure to browse the T-Shirts, keychains, and one of a kind miner's helmets for a great souvenir from the Maggie Mine. We also carry a great line of Railroad souvenir too!
