Blasted Out of Solid Rock Cliff by Local Miners
The Museum and Community Center are both located completely underground.
The Museum includes many displays, including real mining equipment.
The Community Center hosts a large array of meetings, parties, weddings, reunions, dances, and community gatherings. The Center features a large commercial kitchen, fully stocked bar, bathroom facilities, and around 10,000 square feet of floor space.
History: Blasted out of solid rock cliff by three Creede miners, construction of the museum began in 1990. County-hired laborers and volunteers completed all the other work, including rock removal, cribbing, rock batting and cement work. The next summer, tours were given to show actual mining in operation. The miners created 600 feet of drift with 22 displays, a gift shop and the Creede Community Center.
