Meadow Mine

“Somewhere along Garden City Road (and presumably near Garden City Pond) should be the ruins of the Garden City Mine. It was our hopes to find these ruins during a drive along the old road early in the fall. Almost too easily we happened across a small poor rock pile along the north side of the road. Poor rock piles mean a nearby mine, and we took a look around to find it. We dropped down from atop the small pile and entered a shaded cedar swamp, sprinkled with a variety of shallow dips and holes in the ground. It was possible that these pot marks were the result of the swampy soil, or they could be subsidence from a mine underneath our feet.”
