Travel 1,000 Feet Underground into a Colorado’s Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine
Growing up in Colorado, I have been to numerous attractions. Some of these include Mesa Verde, The Great Sand Dunes, The Four Corners, and more. However, one attraction that I've never been to and that has just been added to my list of places in our great state to check out is the Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine.
Colorado's Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine is located near Cripple Creek, Colorado, which pretty much serves as little more than a gambling destination these days. Cripple Creek is a popular destination for those looking to gamble closer to places like Colorado Springs and Pueblo, as it is located just west of Colorado Springs.
However, like many places in Colorado, Cripple Creek began as a mining town. Luckily, the main gold mine in Cripple Creek, the Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine, has been well preserved enough that it can accommodate tours.
Take a virtual tour of the Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine:
