Lebanon and Everett Mine Tunnels

An exact year of construction for the Everett Tunnel is unknown, but the mine was in operation through the mid-1880s.  In recent years, portions of the tunnels have been reopened as an interpretive exhibit in conjunction with History Colorado’s reconstruction of the Georgetown Loop Railroad.  The property is associated with the Mining Industry in Colorado Multiple Property Submission.
