  • Tour guide Jeff did an amazing job, can tell he loves his job. Worth every penny. It's hard to believe the hard ships of working in the mines the men went through. Good lesson in our history and how lucky we are in our modern times.
  • This place is so awesome. Came here for the first time last labor day and was very impressed with everything. This year I brought back 35 members of my car club during our event that I planned. They all really enjoyed themselves and the staff was very accommodating for large groups. Keep it up!!
