Adventure Awaits

Burros at the Silver Mine

Burros were an important part of mining in Colorado and especially in our area. Burros provided transportation of supplies to the mines as well as hauling silver ore out of the mines.

Lebanon Tour and Gold Panning

It all started with finding a few flakes of gold in a pan in Clear Creek in 1859 and the rush was on. You too can experience the same excitement and pan for real gold!

Extended Lebanon Tour

Go deep into our historic silver mine more 1,000 feet underground to see the artifacts left by the men working there more than a hundred years ago. Learn what it was really like to be a hard rock miner in 1889.
